August 2012

after 40 years of midwifery service, retirement is on the horizon.

(No conceptions after October 2011)


Catching babies and supporting birthing families has been a defining role in my life. After much thought and prayer I have decided to experience life off call. I plan to fill time with travels, spontaneous visits with friends, and longer visits with family. It has been an honor to share in nearly 2000 births. Life as a midwife has been wonderful and I am thankful everyday for the experiences I have had. You have all blessed me in one way or another!

I would love to hear your treasured birth story, be it 40 years old or about the fresh one in your arms. Please forward them and any messages to ginnie@birthwithmidwife.com I look forward to hearing from you and receiving those precious photos as your family grows.


Truly, Ginnie
