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 (Certified Professional Midwives), which are home birth midwives. We have a birth center in Middletown that we are excited about them just opening their doors, 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 homebirth midwifery student pursuing my CPM certification and am in the final Phase of my training. I am currently providing care to clients under the supervision of one of our highly experienced CPM’s. I plan to certify in 2019, at which point I will be starting my own practice.
As the midwife I take the place of your obstetrician. That means under my care you receive monthly visits at the beginning of pregnancy, then bi-weekly starting at 28 weeks. At 36 weeks we do a birth run through at your home, and then do weekly visits until your birth. After your birth we see each other three times in the first couple weeks and then once more at six weeks.
Because sometimes things come up, I require collaborative care with an obstetrician. You would need to see them at least once during your pregnancy. Don’t worry, I work with a great one!
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 do this work because I’m answering a calling. Its a truly blessed life I lead to do work that I love!
