    15 years ago, Elizabeth heard the call in a dream that repeated like groundhog day…

    Babies being born into her outstretched hands, night after night, spirit speaking to her through her dreams of becoming a midwife. But it was way beyond that. It was a call to show up and heal. And help others heal. “The mother’s I witnessed taught me about strength and courage, the kind that comes from vulnerability and surrender. The babies taught me about innocence, we are all born with it. And the partners taught me about trust; how you can love someone enough to trust their choices without trying to change their minds. To say I chose midwifery would be a lie, midwifery chose me. But I honor my choice to not only listen to The Calling, but to have the courage to show up and heal my own trauma. Receiving The Calling to become a midwife is the singular greatest thing that has ever happened to me. I have learned that birthing babies is what midwifery is all about – and birthing babies is just the tip of the iceberg…




    A consultation with Elizabeth felt like a conversation with a friend. She was caring and empathetic, listened to my concerns and my story, and was very willing to help. Elizabeth was very knowledgeable in all tings related to pregnancy and birth and provided me with useful information and resources. Her guidance has left me feeling prepared, calm, and empowered for whatever this pregnancy and delivery may bring. She will forever hold a place in my heart. —Lilian Wenzel—
