Serving Duluth and Northern Minnesota!

Hi, I am Serena, the midwife of Earth Roots Midwifery. I view pregnancy, birth and the postpartum time as normal physiological processes and hold them as sacred transitions in a family's life. Science now shows that what we experience in utero (epigenetics) and during the first 7 years of our life, shapes who we become as a human being. With this "new understanding", we need to be viewing pregnancy, birth and the postpartum time, as an imperative and optimal time for supporting families.

Earth Roots Midwifery supports families by offering family-centered care that cultivates the Biodynamic Model of care; this means that I support a woman and her baby with the least amount of interventions, while protecting their well-being with Evidence-Based Practices. I believe that encouraging and supporting women to access their intuition and make Informed Choices about their care, is the cornerstone of helping women to feel empowered by their experiences. I envision a world where every person, regardless of their race, religious faith,  gender identity, socioeconomic status, or choice of birth setting, has access to midwifery care.

Meet Your Midwife

I experienced my first two births at 13 and 15 years old while being witness to my little brother and sister being born. Those experiences, and my deep love for children left a big imprint on me. It wasn't until 10 years later that I learned about doulas and midwives.

After my first doula birth, I knew I wanted to become a midwife. I wanted the opportunity to hold space for women to have the birth they truly desired. I wanted to see babies welcomed into the world in the most gentle way possible. I wanted the first imprint on them to be of love and trust, and I wanted to hold space for women to feel empowered by their experiences. Soon after my epiphany moment of wanting to become a midwife, I began searching for a school that would offer the highest standard of midwifery education, and that felt like a good fit for me. I chose to attend Birthingway College of Midwifery in Portland, OR.

It is my belief that a woman's body was designed to carry and birth babies safely. I believe in pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum as normal physiological transitions in a woman’s life. It is my intention and goal to hold space for women to find their inner strength, their inner wisdom, and their ancestral knowledge for giving birth, regardless of where they choose to birth their baby. I offer family-centered care that supports families in making Informed Choices about their care. This means that we talk a lot about what is "standard care" and I give you lots of information to support you in making Informed Choices. You are in charge. This is your body, your baby, and your birth. I will do my best to support you in sifting through not only all the information, but also through all of the emotions, fears and joys that come along with growing a family. I am a nurturer by nature, and I would be honored to support you.

Outside of supporting families, other interests and hobbies that keep me busy are: cooking whole foods; knitting; sewing by hand; fermenting foods; making ghee; reading; learning about living off-grid and how to minimize my carbon-footprint;  researching and fantasizing about homesteading; and spending as much time out in nature as I can. After living in Oregon for 11 years, I am happy to be home serving my community, and happy to be close to Lake Superior again.

If you are looking for services outside of what I am offering, I am happy to assist you with finding those resources.
