Marita Obst: My approach to midwifery is based in a foundation of communication and consent. Pregnancy and birth are intimate events that hold the potential for powerful personal growth, that often require vulnerability. I strongly believe that this is best accomplished when space is held for families to decide what is best for them and their children. Each time that I am privileged to witness a family grow, I am humbled by their strength and perseverance. I grew up in a family that was deeply involved in social justice issues, supporting human rights and sexual health education. I had always been fascinated with pregnancy and birth and knew that I wanted to engage in a career that would allow me to support people’s agency, bodily autonomy, and reproductive rights. That passion was embodied in midwifery, even before I had the words or understanding to fully conceptualize what a midwife was. I began my first degree in Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto, eight years ago, before being called into midwifery and being accepted to study in Mount Royal University in Calgary. Throughout my time at Mount Royal, I enhanced my midwifery education through attending breastfeeding seminars, participating in LGBTQ health forums, and volunteering on a sexual abuse support line. At the University of Toronto I completed an undergraduate thesis on LGBTQ-focused breastfeeding and lactation, and my midwifery thesis focused on Canadian midwives' awareness and care for transgender communities. Please contact me if you or someone you care about is searching for a midwife who is passionate about providing respectful, educated, LGBTQ-inclusive, and client-focused care. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Lucina Midwives in Edmonton.

Marinah's favorite formative memories are political inquiry from a very young age and walks with her grandfather and mother looking for healing plants in the southwest desert and the mountains of Mexico. This combination of politics and traditional medicine are what led Marinah to midwifery, and she continues in her commitment to both activism and birth work. Marinah is specifically focused on the issue of health justice in communities where health disparities are a human rights issue. She is also privileged to have worked with and learned from traditional midwives, primarily Mexican-Indigenous midwives and healers, for most of her life. She is committed to bridging traditional Mexican medicine with oriental and western healing in every aspect of her work. Other Experience: - President of the Midwives Alliance of North America - A founding board member and Director of Maternal health with the Phoenix Allies for Community Health, a completely free clinic for those unable to obtain medical care. Marinah welcomes all families and their loved ones and is honored to be a part of your journey! Located in Phoenix, Arizona, contact her at email@example.com.

My name is Reina Galjour (she/her pronouns) and I have been a direct-entry midwife (CPM) since 2004. I have worked in other states/countries since then (not in NC due to legal regulations of direct-entry midwifery) which include El Paso TX (6.5 years), Haiti (3 years) and Salt Lake City UT (9 months). I live in Snow Camp, NC with my partner and 3-year-old child. I’m now offering home intrauterine insemination (IUI) services for LGBTQIA+ folks (and all others). IUI is a simple procedure performed under sterile technique, in which sperm is directly introduced into the top portion of the uterus. This can be done with either cryo (frozen) sperm from a sperm bank, or donated (fresh) sperm which I process on site. In my everyday life, I strive to be "the change I wish to see in the world" by embodying anti-racism, anti-heteropatriarchy, anti-cissexism, and actively working to dismantle all forms of oppression, while simultaneously creating and participating in a paradigm where all people can thrive. As an experienced midwife, I understand the vulnerability that is inherent in spaces working closely with people's' bodies--from preconception through postpartum and infant feeding. My goal is to provide care that is empowering and affirming. Please feel free to reach out: (336) 675-9769 (text, call, WhatsApp), firstname.lastname@example.org.
