Certified Professional Midwife, Licensed Midwife, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
Renée has attended hundreds of births over the last ten years, and has practiced as a Licensed Midwife since 2014. She has worked in the birth center setting as staff midwife and in home birth. She's also had the privilege of attending births in rural Iowa and Colorado with midwives who serve Amish and Mennonite families. She has a BA in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
Renée’s commitment to compassionate maternity care was inspired by her grandfather, a practicing doctor until his late 80s, when he volunteered at a hospice run by nuns. Hearing his stories, following him on rounds, and seeing the close relationships that often grew between him and his patients taught her that good medicine has to include “being there.”
She's also completing a certificate in Creative Writing/Poetry at Berkeley City College and has been nurturing her meditation practice for six years.
