Meet Meg, CPM LM (WI)

Serving Winona, Rochester, LaCrosse, and The Driftless Region

Hello!  I am a Certified Professional Midwife and Licensed Midwife living in Winona and serving the surrounding region. I am passionate about providing family-centered care that puts you in charge of the transformative process of pregnancy and birth. I have been working with birthing families for 16 years, and have been a Certified Professional Midwife for 6 years.

I provide safe, personalized, evidenced-based care in the comfort of your own home. I enjoy using my knowledge as a clinical herbalist to help families deal with the normal discomforts of pregnancy and birth, and find the plant remedies that are best for you. I have also received advanced training in Spinning Babies techiniques and bring that knowledge and training into both prenatal care and the birth process.

I walk by the side of the families I serve through out the entire pregnancy and birth process. Through building a personal relationship in the months leading up to childbirth,  we create an atmosphere of trust that facilitates peaceful and empowered births.  I also provide post- partum care for the birthing parent and babe up to 6 weeks.  Nothing’s better than snuggling into your own bed with a new babe after birth, and having your care givers come to you!

Outside of providing care for birthing families I am also a clinical herbalist. I find great peace and joy in foraging for plants medicines out in the woods and crafting personalized medicines from them. I live with my two sons and enjoy traveling, improving my spanish, and dancing in my spare time.

Feel free to call me to set up an informational interview. I look forward to working with families in Southern Minnesota and the Driftless Region.
