The Birth Center Believes

Women have the right to seek care that is medically safe, that fits their lifestyle, and that recognizes and respects their individual, physical, spiritual, psychological, and economic needs.

Women and their families have the right and responsibility to assume an active role in their own healthcare.

Childbirth is a normal, healthy process. The role of the caregiver is to support and promote this normal process, while recognizing and dealing with any deviation from normal. Confidence in the normal process is promoted.

The family is the cornerstone of the social structure; therefore, maternity care must support and promote family unity and development. Family members, including siblings, should have the opportunity to be involved in the childbearing experience. Family is defined by the client.

Education is an essential part of quality healthcare. With knowledge freely exchanged, clients are encouraged to make informed choices about their healthcare.

Mission Statement

“To empower and support women and families by providing quality and holistic women’s health care, education, and community.”

Core Values

Holistic, Empowering, & Supportive

Kathleen McCarthy, CNM, MSN

Kathleen has been practicing as a nurse midwife for over fourteen years. She received her Masters degree in nurse midwifery at University of Pennsylvania. Kathleen is one of the co-owners, but has retired from catching babies. Currently, Kathleen’s focus is on holistic women’s healthcare, women’s health education, holistic menopause, childbirth education and empowerment workshops.

Kathleen says, “Practicing as a nurse midwife is one of the most rewarding journeys I have ever taken. It has brought me from hospital birth to my beloved home at The Birth Center. I have learned much from my experiences with women and families. Most importantly, it has taught me that we all have the right to make well informed educated choices and that all women are powerful beyond measure and have an innate ability to know what is best for them.”

Katie Mansur CNM, MS

Katie decided to become a midwife while pursuing her first Bachelors degree in Gender and Women’s Studies at The University of Rochester in New York. This led her to the high-tech, fast-paced world of New York City for an education at The Columbia University School of Nursing. She studied in clinics around the city, but didn’t feel like she understood the true meaning of midwifery until she got to train under a homebirth midwife in Lancaster, PA. Before and after graduation, Katie worked as a labor and delivery nurse. Her first midwifery job was in a small private practice where she attended over 300 births.

Coming to The Birth Center, according to Katie, is like ‘coming home.’ “I get to give women the type of care I would hope to receive myself. I love being a part of this loving family.”

Ariela Borkan, CNM, MSN

Ariela has vivid memories of the fascination and delight she felt at the first (cow) births she attended at the side of her mother, a dairywoman. Growing up surrounded by midwives, she quickly understood that she too would follow that path.

Ariela completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan in Medical Anthropology and worked as a research assistant studying the maternal health experiences of refugee women in the United States. After earning a nurse degree from Johns Hopkins University, Ariela worked as a full-spectrum doula, a labor and delivery nurse at a busy Baltimore hospital, and as a maternal health researcher in Liberia, West Africa. These experiences grounded her trust in birth and solidified her passion for reproductive justice work.

Ariela completed her midwifery studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where she caught babies in both busy hospital and home birth settings. She is delighted to join The Birth Center family.

Ariela lives with her partner and their dog, Carol. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, biking, foraging for edible mushrooms, and creating birth-related paper cuttings.

Dawn Moore, CNM, MSN

During her first pregnancy, 8 years ago, Dawn fell in love with the phenomenal care she received from her Midwives. It was during that time that she realized she wanted to become a midwife.

Dawn soon started nursing school and graduated in 2010. She worked in a medical-surgical unit in Baltimore after nursing school, but eventually moved back to Delaware and worked with disabled children.

I absolutely love working here. It is amazing meeting so many different women and I feel so privileged to be present during and after their birth.”

In 2012 Dawn began working as a doula and Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, and in 2013 Dawn was offered a nursing position at The Birth Center. Dawn continued her education as a Midwifery student at Frontier Nursing. Dawn has since graduated and is now a member of The Birth Center team as a Certified Nurse Midwife!

Julia Paulus, CNM, MSN

Julia came to Delaware to attend the University of Delaware and never left! She graduated with her Bachelor Degree in Nursing from the University of Delaware and then received her Master of Science in Nurse-Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University.

Starting in middle school, Julia knew she wanted to care for women during labor and birth. That desire eventually morphed into a strong calling to midwifery. While at UD, she sought GYN care from Nicole at The Birth Center and instantly fell in love with the care that TBC provides. In August of 2016, Julia and her husband welcomed their first baby in the yellow room at The Birth Center! In her free time, she loves to spend time with her family, drink hot tea, and sew.

Julia is so excited to be joining The Birth Center family as a midwifery intern and is passionate about family-centered care that focuses on empowering the woman to be an active participant in her health care decisions.

Megan Jones RN, BSN

Megan’s nursing career is an illustration of how one amazing life experience can change the trajectory of your life. Megan graduated from the University of Delaware with her Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 2007. Following graduation she worked in Critical Care/ ICU for 5.5 years. This experience gave her a diverse background and excellent clinical decision making skills. It was her experience with her second pregnancy that propelled her on her journey to be a nurse at The Birth Center. She enjoyed the education and empowerment The Birth Center gave to their patients and knew this is the path she wanted to take with her career.

She then transitioned to working as a nurse on a labor and delivery unit for the next 3.5 years, gaining experience with laboring moms in a hospital setting. Finally the stars aligned and Megan was able to begin at The Birth Center on June 1, 2016.

Megan is excited to begin her journey here and help provide the empowering experience she had, to other pregnant and laboring moms. Megan has 3 daughters with her husband Michael; Charlotte (hospital birth on July 21, 2008), Georgia (birth center birth on June 8, 2011), and Felicity (birth center birth on April 21, 2014). When she is not at The Birth Center you can find her hiking, camping, and going to the beach with her family.

Debbie Jones, RN

Deb graduated from Presbyterian University of Pennsylvania Nursing School in 1977. Yes 40 years ago! From the start, she knew the difference she wanted to make in this world was through work in women’s health. Immediately after graduating, she worked in Presbyterian Hospital‘s Labor and Delivery department. Since then she has worked in the tri-state area (PA, NJ, DE) entirely in OB/GYN nursing. It was most important to her to be part of offering excellent healthcare to women at one of the most vulnerable times in their lives, pregnancy and birth. She has worked 40 years in labor and delivery; triaging OB/GYN women, doing high-risk home care, case managing pregnant women, teaching prenatal classes, performing prenatal testing, and working in birth centers.

Deb has four children, a dog and 5 cats (because of course, the cat she rescued was pregnant!). Although she has worked in many genres, The Birth Center is definitely her idea of offering the most excellent care to women in one of the most vulnerable times of their lives, pregnancy and birth.

Hannah Chijioke, RNC

Hannah is a Registered Nurse who works per diem here at The Birth Center; she helps with deliveries and home visits.

When she is not at The Birth Center, Hannah keeps busy being a solo mama to 5 amazing kids, running an essential oil team, Thriving Essentially Young Living Team, and teaching webinars on natural health and wellness options for busy families. “Our family motto is “Choosing to Thrive”, helping others learn how to thrive is a passion of mine.” Hannah also picks up shifts at Christiana hospital as an L&D nurse to keep her hospital skills current.

Being a fairly new transplant to the East Coast, Hannah enjoys discovering new places and experiences with her family in Delaware and the surrounding areas. “I think it is so fun that I get to drive through a State Park to go to Target and Trader Joe’s, I love the natural beauty and history of this area!” Hannah enjoys hiking with her family, going to the beach, exploring the Baltimore harbor, enjoying the Christmas experience in NYC, or checking out the fantastic museums and historical sites in Philly and D.C.

Helping women and their families with the birth experience that they desire remains a top priority for Hannah, “although I’ve been at many hundreds of births, each one is still a miracle of joy to me, I love getting to help introduce new family members.”

Beth Harrison, RN

Beth was excited to join the birth center family in 2014. As a nursing student, Beth toured The Birth Center, and realized the missing piece from her hospital birth with her first son. She went home that day and told her husband she was going to work at The Birth Center one day. After nursing school, Beth worked in medical nursing, in the community, and in the emergency room. She also became a Birth Center mom during that time. She completed a Doula training course ToLabor to become more involved in the labor and birth process. When a position opened at The Birth Center Beth was excited to apply and accept the position. Beth says “I love how it empowers women and empowers birth.”

Darci O’Donnell, RN

Darci has always been passionate about birth and women’s wellness even from a young age. When pregnant with her first child, 14 years ago, she found The Birth Center and fell in love with the atmosphere. All three of her children were born in the yellow room upstairs, in what she describes as “the most empowering and uplifting experiences of my life.”

Darci has worked as a doula, with Birth In Full Bloom for the last 5 years, helping women fulfill their birth goals. During that time she realized this was the field she wanted to work in once graduating from nursing school. For the last 8 years, Darci has worked at AI DuPont Children’s hospital, first as an aide, and then as a nurse on a med/surg unit. She plans on continuing her education to become a Nurse Midwife.

“I am very excited to be apart of the Birth Center team, as many of these women have been in my life since my first pregnancy. It truly is a family here and this has been a goal of mine for a long time!”

Justine Deputy, RN, MSN

I fell in love with The Birth Center during nursing school while completing a clinical rotation. After graduating as a Registered Nurse, I joined the wonderful team of midwives and nurses at the center. For over 4 years, I worked at TBC attending births and caring for women in pregnancy, during labor, and postpartum. Then, in June 2015, I had my son Warren and had the privilege to experience a birth center birth myself! The experience was overwhelmingly incredible in part because of the environment and support offered at the center. Currently, I am involved in education classes, marketing, managing the doula program, and more. I love being able to be a part of sharing resources and knowledge that allow clients to become knowledgeable about their health especially during the pregnancy and postpartum period as well as support the community of moms navigating motherhood.

Corinne Daut, RN

Corinne grew up in Delaware but moved away to attend college. After welcoming her first daughter as a college student, she decided she wanted to switch majors to become a registered nurse. She moved home and began nursing school and earned a certificate in Licensed Practical Nursing in 2009. She worked as an LPN for two years while continuing nursing school, and graduated in 2011 becoming a Registered Nurse.

Corinne had breastfeeding struggles with her first daughter, so during her second pregnancy (while working as a night shift RN in pediatrics), she began reading every breastfeeding book she could get her hands on. She welcomed her second daughter at The Birth Center in April 2013 and had a wonderful breastfeeding experience. She attended breastfeeding support group, meeting Katie Madden and some of the mothers and babies she had helped. After this experience, Corinne decided that she wanted to help moms and babies too because she had experienced both breastfeeding trial and triumph. She reached out to Katie at that time about a possible mentorship to become an IBCLC. Corinne welcomed another child, a son, at The Birth Center in July 2016 and had another amazing, though different and challenging breastfeeding experience. She began working at The Birth Center in April 2017.

When she’s not working with new mamas and babies, you can find her busy at home with her husband and their blended family of four kids, ranging in age from toddler to teenager. Corinne has plans to further her education when her toddler son begins preschool next year.

Gwynne Borsello, RN, BSN

Gwynne grew up in Hockessin, Delaware and earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing Cum Laude at the University of Delaware in 2000 where she was also a member of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. She began her nursing career in labor and delivery at Christiana Hospital later the same year. She worked for Christiana Care until 2010. She took some time off during those years to give birth to her three children. During the past three years, she has continued her nursing career working at a pediatrician’s office in Hockessin, Delaware.

Gwynne always knew she wanted to work in the medical field. When she was young you could find her doing anything from covering herself in bandages to volunteering at A. I. duPont Hospital for Children. She found her calling while in nursing school during her labor and delivery rotation. Being a part of one of the most important days of a woman’s life and experiencing a new life taking its first breath, was the most empowering professional experience for her. This was also the most empowering personal experience of her own life with the births of her own children.

After having her first child and struggling with her own breastfeeding journey, she discovered the field of lactation consulting. She knew she wanted to help and empower other moms during their breastfeeding journeys. She found her way to The Birth Center in April 2017 to begin her training to become an IBCLC.

When Gwynne is not helping nursing moms and their babies, you can find her spending time with her family at home on their small chicken farm, at the beach, camping, or exercising.

Meet Our Patient Care Technicians

Jenna Carlin, MA

Jenna became interested in health care during her senior year of high school after she volunteered at Shore Memorial hospital in New Jersey. She started her career as a medical assistant at Harris School of Business. She was attending school while she was pregnant with her first child and knew she wanted to work with moms and babies. During her externship for school she worked at a OB/GYN office to complete her hours. She then moved to Delaware and finished school. While she was in school, she became a Birth Center patient and found out that they were looking for a patient care technician. She fell in love with The Birth Center and the idea of being able to work with moms and babies was her dream. She got hired as a tech for The Birth Center in the fall of 2014. When she got the call saying she was hired she had so much joy and excitement. Working at The Birth Center and being able to care for moms and babies is so amazing and she loves every second of it.

Megan Riccio, CNA

As far back as she can remember, Megan always knew she wanted to work in the healthcare field. If she wasn’t dressing up as a doctor for Halloween, she was making sure the home first aid kit had band-aids and antibiotic cream. Megan always made sure everyone was okay when they got hurt. She has always been fascinated with how the human body works and when her youngest brother was born she knew she wanted to become a Registered Nurse. It was not until she started working as a tech at The Birth Center in March 2017 that she knew she wanted to work in Labor and Delivery. Megan is currently at Cecil Community College studying Nursing. When she is not studying you can find her spending time with her family, friends, and any animals she can pet.
