Certified Professional Midwife, Licensed in ID & WY

Labor Doula  

 

Even as a young child I knew I would spend my life working with mothers and babies. Pregnancy has always inspired me, and in high school I decided to pursue birth work as a career. My senior year of high school I had the privilege of witnessing a neighbor’s planned home birth. I was so deeply moved by that birthing mother’s power and strength that I have been studying natural birth ever since. 

My midwifery education began in Portland Oregon at Birthingway College of Midwifery, where I received my doula training in 2007, and began the school’s midwifery program in 2009. 

My family moved to Teton Valley Idaho in 2013 for me to pursue clinical training closer to where my husband was already working as a fly fishing guide. I spent two and half years under the guidance of Kathy Lebaron at Selah Midwifery Center in Rigby, Idaho and attended over 80 births as a student midwife. In October 2015 I obtained my Bachelors degree of Science of Midwifery through Birthingway, along with the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) credential through the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM). I licensed as a midwife in the state of Idaho 2015 and Wyoming in 2016. 

My husband and I have spent the last 10 years together, seeking adventure and building our family. We have two daughters, 7 and 1, both born at home. Outside of midwifery I enjoy exploring the amazing scenery around our home in Victor, Idaho; usually hiking or floating any of the surrounding rivers. I also love all the live music our valley has to offer, and find my way to concerts whenever possible. Though I’ve only lived in Idaho for 4 and a half years, I have certainly come to call this my home. 

Birth is the beginning of life; the beginning of mothering, and of fathering. We all deserve a good beginning.” Sarah J. Buckley, MD
