2017 Stats


What an incredible year I have had with so many wonderful couples!  I am blessed to have served 37 couples this year.  Love each and every one of these couples and precious babies, and honored they chose A Sacred Journey Midwifery Services PLLC to help them through this journey.   My clients this year have been so wonderfully flexible with recurrent appointment reschedules due to my personal journey going through IVF in 2017. Like every year, I am sent the best clients to work with! Here are the stats for 2017:
