Meet Your Midwife

Amber Pearson CPM, LM has been supporting families for over a decade. She loves supporting families during one of the most intimate and vulnerable times of their lives. Every mother has a unique path through pregnancy, birth, and beyond. 

 

My intention in working with families is to give them the resources and tools to navigate pregnancy, birth, and the first couple of years with as much ease, balance, and connection as possible.

We were extremely lucky to have Amber as our midwife during the pregnancy and birth of our daughter. She has a comprehensive knowledge of nutrition, yoga, and health that was a big help to me because it had been 8 years since my last pregnancy and I had forgotten everything! 

Amber has a gentle, comforting touch and a calm, confident demeanor, but most importantly she's a master of being present yet not intrusive during birth.

Immediately postpartum she was invaluable. I had water, I had my tincture, I had food, the baby and I were covered and warm.

We had a somewhat stressful postpartum period and Amber made it much, much easier. She had great tips that, even though I'm on baby #3, I had never heard before. She also came by to do extra weight checks for our daughter and was a big reassurance to us that she was gaining weight and everything was going fine. 

Amber is an asset to any birth team and I'm so glad she was part of ours. We will definitely work with her again.

WHAT FAMILIES SAY

—  Mary

As a Licensed Midwife, we stand for individualized care. We want to serve your family so you can make informed decisions along the way and not feel pressured into medical interventions just because it is standard.  Our training is to support the physiological process and if an unlikely emergency arises, we are prepared. If at any time we see you and your baby are at risk, we have a discussion of what your options are in creating the best experience for you. 

 

Midwifery care is for you if:

 

You don't see birth as just a medical event.

 

You feel comfortable being in your own home.

You trust your body.

You want body autonomy.

 

You want to choose how and when to give birth.

 

You want to know everyone who is at your birth and feel comfortable with them. 

You want individualized care during your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey. 

You want to make informed choices for your family. 

Is Midwifery Care for you?

Is Homebirth Safe?

The best thing you can do is get informed. I encourage you to do your research. In California, we have a 30-70% chance of a Cesarean Birth when birthing in the hospital. And for some careproviders, it is even higher. In my years of experience, I have a 0-1% yearly cesarean rate and that is because our care is 100% different. 

Do Your Research!

Read this study of 500,000 women who chose to birth at home. The outcomes are significantly better than in hospitals and the risk of stillbirth, neonatal mortality or morbidity is not different whether birth is intended at home or hospital.

17,000 women chose to birth at home with midwifery lead care and the cesarean rate was only 5.2%.

MD associate professor of ob-gyn at Harvard Medical School explains why the cesarean section is so high.
