Gail Brown, ND, CPM

Gail believes that birth is a natural life occurrence and that women can birth their babies. She sees her role as a caregiver to the woman, to guard and educate, focusing on providing sound advice and good nutrition as the road to a safe birth and a healthy baby. Midwife means “with woman,” and Gail loves being with you.

Emily Prentice

Emily believes in taking a holistic approach to caring for families during their pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. The kind of care that families receive during this time can have a huge impact on both their immediate and long term physical and mental health. Midwifery care focuses on prevention, education and collaboration, all things that she believes are important aspects of any form of health care.
