About

There is nothing more special than welcoming your baby into the world from the comfort of your home. Being able to eat, drink, move around as you wish, and being tucked into your bed to snuggle your new baby surrounded by your loved ones.

Midwifery care is very personalized care. For that reason, we provide in-home prenatal and postpartum visits as well as the birth. Our service area spans across many areas of Middle Tennessee including: Crossville, Jamestown, Cookeville, Sparta, Gainesboro, Lafayette, Red Boiling Springs, Hartsville, Carthage, Lebanon, Smithville, Mt. Juliet, Murfreesboro, and some parts of Nashville.
