So you thinking about home birth are you!? If so, you have found one of the many great avenues to get incredible midwifery care here in Cincinnati. Here in the Greater Cincinnati area we have many home birth midwives which are CPM’s and otherwise. We have a great birth center in Middletown that we are excited just open their doors another 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 when I am providing care under the supervision of one of our local seasoned CPM’s. This would mean that I would be providing your care but if I were to need a second opinion I would have someone to go to, and that there would be a second certified attendant at your birth.
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!
