WHAT WE DO

is a part of who we are

We're in this together

Since 2002 we have had the privilege of working with women during one of the most transformational times in their life- the birth of their children. We see pregnancy and birth as a sacred event, and a time when women gain strength and confidence. We believe having a baby is a healthy normal event, and the process itself can contribute greatly to the personal growth of each woman as well as her family and the entire community. It is our commitment to support and guide each woman on their journey into motherhood.

MEET THE STAFF

  “God was pleased with the midwives. The people continued to increase in number—a very strong people. And because the midwives honored God, God gave them families of their own.”

Bethaney brings her gifts in administration as she blesses each family and our staff with making sure all scheduling needs and communication with care providers is met. Her role is just as vital to each families care as our health care providers as she not only helps navigate insurance verifications and approvals, but takes moments of the day to stop, listen, and pray over families as led and needed.
