ViviAnne Fischer, ​MA, CPM, LM (WA & ID)

I am a licensed midwife in both Washington and Idaho.  I live just outside of Pullman on 4 acres with my supportive husband and three boys (ages 14, 12, and 10).  I received my Bachelors in Midwifery from the Midwives College of Utah and passed my national and state certifying exams.  Midwives College of Utah is accredited by the Midwifery Education and Accreditation Council.  The clinical portion of my program was completed in Moscow, ID and Spokane, WA with Certified Professional Midwives and a Certified Nurse Midwife.  Prior to becoming a midwife, I served our community as a doula since 2007 and I have been an instructor in the Department of Human Development at WSU since 2008.  Teaching classes such as Family Stress and Coping, Work and Family, Family Interaction, Prenatal-Early Childhood Development, etc. cumulated in the knowledge I bring with me in working with families and guiding them through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.  I serve on the Idaho Midwifery Council and I am working with WSU researchers who aim to educate women about their birthing options.  I am passionate about guiding women and their partners through this journey and creating an environment that  along with evidence-based care supports normal physiological birth.
