The Midwifery Model of Care is founded on the belief that pregnancy and birth are normal and extraordinary life occurrences and as midwives, we are trained to recognize when things shift outside the realm of normal. To help you remain low risk, we provide holistic care and keep the instances of intervention minimal as we believe that your body and your baby are the experts of this process without needing interference.
My name is Angie Hotz. I am a mother, midwife, grannie, artist, scifi geek, and lover of plants.
I came to midwifery by way of discovering how fulfilling my own pregnancies and births were while under midwifery care. My midwives showed me another way. They listened deeply, were kind, and truly encouraged me to feel like I was the expert of my own body and babies. This is what I want for all of my own midwifery clients!
I am passionate about you feeling satisfied with your experiences and the best way to do that is through true informed consent, shared decision making, and creating relationships built on trust.
As humans, we hold many big feelings simultaneously, especially during pregnancy and birth. I want to reduce your anxiety by helping you understand what your options are and for you to feel like you called all the shots. I will do my absolute best to keep you and your baby safe while cheering on your bravery.
I help you honor the magical and the messy parts of this big childbirth and parenting adventure. I catch babies and have office space at the Mount Vernon Birth Center.
At this time in my career, I believe that being a solo independent midwife is my calling. I want to be there from the start to finish of your care and for you to know exactly who will be there to witness your journey.
