“Birth is one of the most powerful of all human experiences” -Robbie Davis-Floyd


What I Do

Founded in 2018, Kee to Life Birth Services serves women and families throughout Northern and Central Arizona.  My approach brings together compassionate, holistic midwifery wisdom in harmony with knowledgable evidence and relationship-based midwifery care. I also offer placenta encapsulation services, tinctures, pre-natal and postpartum education classes, as well as birth photography!


“It is my mission to serve all women as a trusted and knowledge filled guide when called upon and to apply holistic modalities that work to continue to support normal physiological birth.”

— Keelan mercer, FOUNDER


My model of holistic, evidence and relationship-based midwifery care makes the journey of pregnancy, birth and postpartum truly special. I believe in:

  • Informed choice

  • Creating a safe space for women to be heard and respected

  • Honoring the diversity of human experience and family structure

My hope is that you will feel lovingly supported, empowered, and transformed by the life-changing experience of pregnancy, birth and parenthood!
