Mary Mumford Haley, CNM, RNP

Michelle Palmer, CNM, MSN

Michelle has been a nurse midwife since 1998. She has attended births in every setting, including two years in New Zealand, where she managed a Maternity Centre in a remote rural setting and also attended births at home or in the hospital. Michelle is ever amazed by the journeys of women and families and the connections we all make during the process of growing and birthing a child. The opportunity for community building and holding the space for a family to be born is one that she feels privileged to be a part of.  Women birth best where and with whom they feel safest.
