Welcome

We are a team of two experienced midwives, as well as often a trained apprentice,  who have attended home births, water births and VBACs (vaginal birth after cesarean) collectively for more than 25 years. Together we have assisted more than 1000 women and their families welcome their new babies into the world. Based in Western Massachusetts, River Valley Midwives serve families in the Pioneer Valley choosing to birth at home in the Northampton, Easthampton,  Amherst, Holyoke, Springfield, and Greenfield areas as well as the surrounding communities of the Hilltowns and parts of central Massachusetts.

Our main office is in Northampton, MA and we have a new satellite office in Springfield MA.

Midwife mean “with women” and we dedicate ourselves to this definition in all that we do to support natural, family-centered and gentle care during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
