With a background as both a nurse and midwife, I have more than 23 years' experience as a clinician in the United States, Denmark and other countries. Through the years, I have seen various suturing methods, but common to all is that the procedure from diagnosis to suturing is often an unnecessarily protracted and painful experience for the patient and for us as clinicians we sit in really poor ergonomic positions and we always need that “third hand” to hold aside for us so we can see properly.
Augustine is a nationally recognized midwifery educator, experienced business executive, and veteran midwife with a heart focused on the underserved. She respects a woman’s need for the empowering feeling of being undisturbed during labor. She balances this attention to the sacred with 20 years experience attending births in hospitals, birth centers, and homes in rural, urban and suburban environments in the US and abroad. Augustine’s focus is finely attuned to the process of letting go and opening to the unknown in labor and in life.

Sara Kindberg has been a midwife since 1999, working in hospitals in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Greenland. Perineal care and especially surgical repair of perineal lacerations has been her clinical and academic focus and subject of her Master of Health Thesis in 2005 and her PhD dissertation in 2008.
The research highlighted an unmet need for hands-on training and bedside supervision among midwifery students and midwifery colleagues. The Danish Ministry of Innovation and Research rewarded Sara with a grant to commercialize her knowledge and passion for training perineal repair into an online resource: GynZone.com. Sara was awarded “Female Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2011.
Jayne Haven has quickly established herself as a leader in the industry, building a strong reputation for taking good care of her clients and always providing top notch service along with her expertise.

Megan Gross has been a certified nurse-midwife since 2017. She has primarily focused on providing integrative women's health care to her patients. Throughout this time, she has taken a particular interest in women's hormonal health from understanding the science of female sex hormones and how they relate to the rest of the endocrine system, to the body, and to the brain.
Megan focuses on hormonal imbalances in women and finding the root cause of the imbalance and working with her patients to correct that. She sees patients from age teen to menopause and loves addressing the unique issues that come with each age and stage. Since female sex hormones cannot be addressed without discussing sexual health, this is also a focus of Megan's care and education.
