Midwifery with ViviAnne Fischer, LM
Integrating the Art of Traditional Midwifery with Evidence-Based Care
I aim to integrate the art of traditional midwifery with evidence-based care, giving women true informed consent and empowering them to make choices for themselves and their baby. Pregnancy, birth and postpartum offer profound transformational experiences for a woman and her family. I honor the whole health of a woman- physically, emotionally and spiritually. I hope to guide you throughout care so you are ready to embark on the journey of parenthood feeling empowered and whole. While a healthy mother and a healthy baby are very important, it isn’t as simple as addressing only physical health. Our birthing experience is an event in our lives that imprints on us forever, I recognize this space must be filled with gentleness, honor, love and respect. It is clear to me and many others who do birth work, that normal physiological birth works when a woman’s space feels safe and protected, I believe that supporting and safeguarding normal physiological birth results in the best outcomes for mothers and babies. The process of growing and birthing a baby is challenging work, but it is work that holds great potential for being the most rewarding and empowering experience in a woman’s life and has a lasting impact on her family.
For many years women on the Washington side of the Palouse have not had access to midwifery care. I am a Washington and Idaho licensed midwife serving Pullman, Moscow, Colfax, Lewiston, Clarkston, and the surrounding Palouse. I am so pleased to be giving women in our community the choice of home birth with a licensed midwife again!
