Welcome

We are a team of two experienced midwives, as well as 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 1500 women and their families welcome their new babies into the world. Based in Western Massachusetts, River Valley Midwives serve families choosing to birth at home in the Northampton, Amherst, Springfield, and Greenfield areas as well as the surrounding communities of the Hilltowns, Berkshires and parts of central Massachusetts.

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.
