Welcome! My name is Gay Bryson. I am a homebirth midwife serving Central Indiana. If you are looking for a midwife who offers homebirth in a loving, supportive manner, then you have come to the right place!
Philosophy It is my belief that birth is a natural, normal part of life and should be viewed as just that. I see you as an individual and will form your care around your personal needs and desires. Every woman should have a right to choose who she wants to attend her birth and where she would like to birth. It is the midwifes responsibility to inform her clients of her training and experiences. The midwife should offer informed consent in all areas of her practice and the woman should be given opportunities to educate herself and be able to make appropriate decisions for her personally. I truly believe it is your body, your birth and your baby. I feel it is important to be educated in your choices and I will support you in those decisions. I believe that you are intelligent and capable of making informed decisions that you feel are right for you and your family.
A Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) is a knowledgeable, skilled, professional independent midwifery practitioner who has met the standard for certification set by the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) and is qualified to provide the midwifery model of care. The CPM is the only international credential that requires knowledge and experience in out-of-hospital settings.
