Amy Scott, CLC, CPST

Twenty years after Amy's own first midwife and husband assisted birth, her heart still comes alive like no other time than during childbirth.  Watching fathers bond with their babies, mothers thrive with support, and babies be welcomed into a world of love has been transformational in Amy's life.  As a birth assistant her passion is to support from the background, always celebrating the strength of each unique family.

Overcoming years of debilitating post postpartum depression confirms to Amy the value of supporting families in this all important experience of birth. Living half way around the world with young children provided a depth of understanding and compassion for the need of community support for families.  Working as a Community Health Worker providing maternal and infant education in Flagstaff provided invaluable insight into birth, lactation and health of families. Amy brings the values of cultural understanding, emotional support and holistic care to each interaction with families.
