"As a daughter, mother, wife, nurse, and midwife I have always been a caregiver. After working in the hospital for many years I wanted to provide care without all the unnecessary intervention, coercion and frantic pace."
Linda started her career in healthcare at the age of 16 as a CNA in her small, rural hometown in Wyoming. She had wanted to care for children as a pediatrician from a young age. After spending time in close patient care she followed her heart into nursing instead. She went into the Army Reserves to put herself through college. Linda met her husband while a sophomore and married the next year. In college, Linda gravitated toward maternal-child nursing. While following her husband wherever his Air Force duties led, Linda took some time off to raise her young children. She returned to Labor and Delivery when the children were older, working nights and weekends so they could stay home with Daddy.
After moving to an assignment in Germany for 3 years, Linda decided to pursue her Master of Science in Nursing Degree to become a Nurse Practitioner, specializing in Midwifery. When the family returned to the states she completed clinical with an all-female evidence-based Women's Health practice in the Atlanta suburbs. Births were attended at a county hospital with a midwifery-led labor and delivery unit offering a waterbirth option. After graduating and passing the credentialing boards, Linda went to work at Winn Army Community Hospital near Savannah, Georgia for a time. In 2019 her husband Andy, newly retired, took a position at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station as a civilian employee. Linda worked at a homebirth/birth center practice for a year before striking out on her own.
This practice is a culmination of years of dreams and advocacy for mamas and babies. Linda is so proud to offer women and families a safe, loving, individualized, and relationship-based option for their birth and women's health needs.
Alex is a hardworking mama to five beautiful children, Roslin, Quinten, Orion, Preston and Sivan. She has been with her husband, Adam, since 2013. Giving birth to her first son Quinten in 2014 at the hospital Alex experienced the cascade of interventions that is so common. This was what made her realize the hospital system is set up to adhere to their protocols, rather than to the mother’s individual needs and wishes. It wasn’t until after he was born that she fully realized her love and passion for birth, babies and breastfeeding.
Alex has had 3 home births and met Linda when she had her most recent homebirth. After the birth, she and Linda continued to strengthen their friendship and bond by working together for moms and babies. She has been managing the In Bloom office and all things admin since October 2021. She is a vital part of our team and often the first friendly voice you hear on the phone.
Alex continues to grow her skill set, knowledge and expertise as well. Her passion for birth has led her to become a trained doula, placenta encapsulator and prompted her to begin the process of becoming a Certified Lactation Counselor. She is also a backup Birth Assistant.
She’s a wealth of knowledge; ranging from babywearing to special needs nursing and knows of many community resources. She is an advocate for all mothers, and families alike. And we are blessed beyond measure to have her!

"Birth became a passion of mine after I was able to witness the birth of my niece. That passion became a calling after the pregnancy and homebirth of my second son. I realized there are some major gaps in our modern maternal care system. I take pride in helping mothers and families feel empowered. I am honored to ease their stress and fears, to help guide them to feel confident and supported in their decisions during their pregnancy, birth, and parenthood."
