Clear Light Holistic Midwifery
Practice location: Old Town
I graduated from Northeastern University School of Nursing in 1976, and have been involved in health care and women's health for the past 35 years. My own home birth in 1990 started me on the path to midwifery. Soon after my daughter was born, I enrolled in the Ancient Art Midwifery Institute. Simultaneously, I apprenticed with Nancy Duncan, CNM, who later worked with me as a midwifery partner at Clear Light Holistic Midwifery until her retirement in 02/2012. I became a primary midwife in 1994, having also worked with other midwives in Maine, and at a birth center in Honduras. I studied at the New England School of Homeopathy from 1994 - 1998.
The services we offer at Clear Light Holistic Midwifery expanded after moving into our new space in Old Town in 2008. We offer complete home birth midwifery care, prenatal care, labor and delivery assistance, water birth, childbirth education, hypnobirth education, and homeopathic consultation. We now also offer birth center services in our Birth Suite, where women can come and have a natural birth out of the hospital. We offer well-woman care and consultation.
