So you thinking about home birth are you!? If so, you have found one of the many avenues to get incredible midwifery care here in Cincinnati. Here in the Greater Cincinnati area we have CPMs, which are home birth midwives. We have a birth center in Middletown that we are excited to have just opened their doors, a sister birth center in Dayton as well as many Midwife groups in our local hospitals. There’s so many great options that I’m sure you will be able to find one to suit your needs!
I am a Midwifery student pursuing my CPM certification and in the final Phase of my training. I am currently providing care under the supervision of one of our highly experienced CPM’s.
I have been working with multiple local CPM’s since 2011. Though I started out very slow, I have been actively pursuing my certification since 2015. Seeing a woman approach her birth with confidence, taking ownership of her care, and every once in awhile seeing a woman have realizations of her fullest and most truly empowered self is what keeps me going. I have two young children of my own and I will be honest and say it’s not easy to leave them to do my work but I do it because I’m answering a calling. Its a truly blessed life I lead to do work that I love!
