We believe

We know that people who exercise their power during pregnancy, labor, and birth go on to become powerful parents. Mountain Mamas Midwifery practices within the biodynamic model of care. Our goal is to provide compassionate, individualized, and client-centered care which emphasizes the well-being of the whole person. We strive to empower our clients to be their own health advocates. We achieve this through education and informed choice. As a team, we act as witness to the natural process of birth, intervening only to ensure well being.

Biodynamic Care is…

allowing the biologic and physiologic blueprint of birth to unfold without interference or intervention except to facilitate well being. Minimal interference is achieved through trust; trust in the human body, trust in the natural process of labor and birth, and trust between the midwife and client. All decisions regarding client care are made by the family with information and education provided by the midwife to facilitate an informed choice. 



Dani was an incredible guide and support through my pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

That is the thing I loved most about home births with Mountain Mamas, it mattered what I wanted. I was treated with respect and dignity. Each birth was one of the best experiences of my life.

In-home prenatal checkups in the comfort of your own home was a great perk. Dani would come over, take mom’s weight, measure fundal height, use the doppler to monitor baby’s heart rate, check mom’s diet and exercise. Dani took great care during these visits to answer all of our questions, in an extremely time-free manner. She also offered advice and recommendations in an unbiased way, telling us our options.
