Thanks for submitting!

We are currently not taking on new clients as Chelsea begins her career as a midwife and Amanda is finishing her last  year of midwifery training.  We're excited to see what paths our careers take and grateful to all of the clients who have helped us grow in this journey after serving the Hudson Valley for more than 15 years!

Chelsea will begin to provide GYN care to women in the area after she completes her midwifery board certification. She can provide well women visits, contraception, and other primary care roles. 

If you are a previous client we will happily join you for your birth.  Additionally we are working with home birth families as a dual role Midwife Assistant and Doula.  Please contact us if either of these situations are for you.
