Spirit of the Midwife Pregnancy Services was created to inform, educate, and support women and families in and around Richmond, Virginia as they experience pregnancy. Pregnancy, birth, and parenting (and the events leading up to it) are natural aspects of life that can become overwhelming due to information inundation, the opinions of family, friends, and strangers, and feelings of uncertainty that affect most of us as we experience such a major life event.
That’s where SOTM comes in! Here you’ll find professional yet personal relationships that provide evidence-based information and assurance that birthing and parenting the way you see fit is best for your baby.
We realize that the growth of and care for a tiny human leads to lots of questions. We work with you to develop and refine a birth plan, encourage and affirm throughout pregnancy, strive to prepare you and your family for life after your pregnancy ends, and commit to serving in whatever way meets your individual needs. – Though not often discussed, we realize that pregnancy and birth do not always result in the outcomes we expect or desire. If you find yourself pregnant, and in a less than ideal situation, we want to offer our support, as well.
Throughout history, midwives have been pillars of their communities – serving as sages, care providers, and trusted partners in pregnancy and birth. While most contemporary society has moved away from direct service, communal care, and genuine relationships, we hope to share the Spirit of the Midwife with clients and their families. If interested in developing a relationship with a birth professional, don’t hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to your inquiry!
