San Diego County Midwives

Why A Midwife?

We are a voice for normalcy in pregnancy and birth and we believe that all families benefit significantly from the Midwifery Model of Care.  San Diego County Midwives bring respect, gentleness, trust and love to the process of giving birth such that families experience dignity, safety, joy and transformation as they welcome a new life into their arms. With our knowledge, wisdom, compassion and vitality, we stand for childbearing women and their families.

What is Midwifery?

A midwife is a wise woman who is trained in the art and science of birth and is familiar with birth’s many faces. She will guide you based on her education, knowledge, intuition and values. Midwives have attained extensive knowledge of the birthing process and take the necessary actions to prevent issues before, during and after birth. As your pregnancy progresses you and your midwife develop a mutual trust based on collaborative care that culminates in the birthing process

What is the Midwifery Model?

The mother and baby are a unit, whose medical and emotional needs are complementary. Emphasis is on pregnancy and birth as a time of physical, psychological, and emotional growth for mother and fetus.  Our licensed midwives, Gerri L. Ryan and Heather LeMaster, offer complete experienced and caring midwifery services for your birthing needs.


Home birth is safe! Statistics consistently show that newborn mortality rates are substantially lower when babies are born at home. Clinical evaluation, including lab work, assures the mother is within the low-risk category throughout her pregnancy.
