My name is Cindy Morrow and I began my journey to home birth midwifery with my first two natural, unmedicated hospital births. You could say those were my ‘gateway’ births; I just knew there had to be a better way! Our third daughter was born at home with a trained midwife; our fourth daughter was an unassisted ‘free birth’, caught by her Daddy.
I homeschooled our daughters for twenty-three years, and have worked as an Emergency Medical Technician, cared for hospice patients, friends with Traumatic Brain Injury and am self-taught/still learning in Holistic Nutrition/Healing. I am volunteer Chapter Leader for the Cherokee County branch of the Weston A. Price Foundation. I worked for six years as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for Cherokee County. I also write freelance, and my debut novel was published the summer of 2013. Click here to read an article I wrote in Midwifery Today Magazine about our fabulous backup doctor.
From the Amish cornfields of Wisconsin, the organic valleys of Oregon or the sun-soaked suburbs of California, I have had the remarkable opportunity to work under seventeen phenomenal Sr. Midwives across the USA during my training. Whether in a hospital surgery, a three-bedroom home with A/C, an Amish farmhouse lit with gas lamps, or in the middle of a medicinal marijuana farm under the clear night sky, birth is the same: sacred in every way, and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to be invited into a woman's space and herstory.
I have been married to my boyfriend for thirty-seven years. We have four grown daughters, seven granddaughters and a grandson. We are a fertile clan!
I love the opportunity to be a channel of tenderness and encouragement with women and their families. I consider birth sacred, and the invitation to be present, a gift.
