Birth Assistants

Birth assistants are very important members of your birth team. They come from diverse backgrounds and are skilled in labor support, birth, and postpartum care. Some of our birth assistants are also nurses, childbirth educators, doulas, herbalists, massage therapists, or midwives! They help to keep home and birth center births safe and satisfying for the family.

Each BirthCare prenatal client hires a birth assistant of their choice from our list. The birth assistants listed below have received special training that qualifies them to be part of the BirthCare Team. They are Business Associates of BirthCare and maintain certification in CPR and neonatal resuscitation. They are competent and compassionate practitioners, and have demonstrated the ability to work cohesively with our midwives and clients in keeping with the BirthCare Philosophy.

Email addresses have been included here for convenience of communication for those who use email. Please do not rely on this as your only means of contacting a birth assistant, as some may not read email as often as others. If you do not hear back from the birth assistant in a timely manner, feel free to reach out to us, as we will help facilitate contact.
