Nicki Hope, CPM
I am passionate about birth, families, and the midwifery model of care! I believe in information and education to empower women and families to make their childbearing experience the best it can be. My view is that the midwife/client relationship is a partnership. I am humbled and honored that I get to walk beside women as they make the journey through pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum. I am in awe every single time. I am very fortunate to be in a career that brings me such joy.
My training included home and birth center care, as well as hospital experience in a support role. I have personally given birth in all three settings as well! I received a MEAC-accredited graduate degree in midwifery, and have been serving childbearing families in various roles since 2003. I’m also involved in curriculum writing and teaching with a college midwifery program, and am honored that I get to “midwife” new midwives on their journey.
