Executive Director: Becca Emmons, CTM, Doula, CFD
Hello There, I’m Becca! I’m a lifelong student of pregnancy, childbirth and early childhood. I began working as doula in 2007 while still in high school. After attending two years of traditional college, I heard my calling as a midwife and began pursuing midwifery education. After four years of intensive study, I began my apprenticeship under Heather Carmody (CPM, CTM, LM) in 2014. In 2015, we launched The Midwifery Institute, then called Madre Sana, to educate Midwives, Doulas and other birth workers. I finished my Apprenticeship in 2016 and began practicing both cooperatively with Heather and independently as a Traditional Midwife.
I took a step back from midwifery in 2018 following a case of burn out, and spent several years working with autistic children, and starting my own family. In 2022, I am returning to my first love, with the support of my husband and our children. I am so happy to be on this journey with you, and can’t wait to get started!
