Melinda McCoy I was in nursing school many years ago but the western medicine model of care never really fit. After birthing my own 3 babies at home with midwives, I knew caring for women this way was the perfect fit for me. I have been attending births for 20 years, apprenticed in Indiana with a couple midwives and served birthing women in Belize before coming home to serve the families in my own community.
I have been a traditional midwife/birth attendant on my own now for 12 plus years.
I've been married to my husband, Gary, for 30 plus years, we were a homeschool family and we have 2 grandchildren who were born at home as well.
