About Bethany

I was born at home, as were most of my siblings, and I perceived birth as a normal part of life. As I grew older, I knew I wanted to become a midwife myself. I began attending births as a doula in 2002 and began my midwifery education around the same time. I graduated from the Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program and went on to serve families from across Kansas in addition to spending several months working at a Zambian hospital in the bush.

More recently, I married my amazing husband Paul, we had our own baby, Hananiah, and we've relocated to Topeka, Kansas.  These days I spend more time as wife and mom than I do as "midwife," but I'm continuing to practice on a limited basis. If I care for you during your pregnancy, you'll probably run into both Paul and Hananiah, as my office is in our home.

I enjoy supporting women in healthy pregnancies and home births and I current serve as the vice president of the Kansas Midwives Alliance.
