    Philosophy of Care

    Kayla graduated from Yale School of Nursing as a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) in 2013. Since then, she has worked as a CNM in New Hampshire and in Chicago practicing gynecologic, prenatal and postpartum care, and attending births in hospital settings. She has also spent time working as a CNM at Planned Parenthood.

    Kayla is passionate about supporting women and families in the Santa Cruz area during pregnancy, birth, and beyond. She believes that pregnancy and childbirth are inherently normal, healthy processes, and works to support physiologic birth whenever possible.

    She believes providing education, offering compassionate care, and supporting informed, shared decision-making is the key to great care! She is also very passionate about contraceptive counseling, and providing accurate, clear information about all birth control methods to find the option that is the best for each individual. Kayla recently moved to California and is excited to be a part of and get to care for such a wonderful community!
