About The Village Midwife


The Village Midwife Mission Statement is based on Matthew 25:40 ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

 I believe that ALL women deserve to have a wonderful birth experience no matter their economic status, their race, their family situation, their sexual orientation, or their spiritual convictions.

 When I started working as a midwife I knew that I was being called to minister to women and their families.  Many folks see the words “Minister or Ministry” and think of a roaring pastor on the pulpit but the actual definition is “Service”.  The desire of my heart is to serve women and their families.  As I teach student midwives, I pray that I am instilling in them a servant’s heart as well.

 So why did I choose this verse to be the basis of our Mission?  I believe that it very simply states how we should treat each other – as if we were caring for the Lord Himself.

 Many Blessings!
