We are the Inland Empire Homebirth Midwives. We are a group of independently practicing Licensed Midwives and apprentices that work together in support and collaboration of each other.  We welcome babies with gentle hands into this beautiful world in the comfort of their own homes. Browse these pages to learn about each of the women in this wonderful community of midwives.


 Us in 2013

The Inland Empire Home Birth Midwives are sponsoring Call the Midwife on PBS

Check out our sponsorship PBS Spot. A special thanks to our photographer Victoria Karalun of Canary Lane Photography who took all of the photos in the spot. And thanks a bunch to all of the families that brought babies for us to hold!


The Midwives Model of Care The Midwives Model of Care is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes.

The Midwives Model of Care includes:

  •  Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle
  • Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support
  • Minimizing technological interventions
  • Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention

The application of this woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.
