Meet Our Team
Carrie Kinsey, CPM, LM
After my five different birth experiences, I felt called to help other women on their journey of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. Coming alongside their choice between a hospital birth or home birth. If a hospital birth was your choice I'm available to support you as a doula. Helping you make informed decisions when it comes to hospital procedures as well as being emotional and physical support. If a home birth were your choice I would come alongside you to help meet your needs and choices for your best birth outcome, as your provider giving you full pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. Making your family's journey my priority.
I am a Certified Professional Midwife and am licensed in the state of Arizona. Prior to this, I had been apprenticing for 11 1⁄2 years with a wonderful local midwife. I have attended over 150 births, done hundreds of prenatal visits, newborn exams, as well as postpartum visits. I've co-taught birth classes and helped many with breastfeeding difficulties.
As a midwife, I believe you're not just another number. I believe that actually we are the ones who are privileged that you choose to invite us on this very personal and intimate journey of

I view midwifery as much more than a career choice. I believe at the root of things, midwifery is a calling. It called out to me over 30 years ago as friends began to request I assist them with childcare for older children at their births and it kept calling as I found a preceptor and began my studies and journey into coming into my own as a midwife.
I feel to be a midwife is to minister to women and families as they journey through the changes in their body throughout pregnancy, through unfamiliar sensations of labor, and in witnessing the miracle of a family becoming, as a mother gazes into the face of the one her body has carried and then into the face of her partner as they recognize who this new person is.
Coming alongside families as they prepare for and anticipate the arrival of the new member is an honor and privilege to witness and take part in. By getting to know the family along the weeks and months before birth we are more able to provide individualized care and develop a relationship of mutual respect and trust.
In the past few years, I have begun to feel the need to make sure my community will be well cared for in future years and have come alongside younger women who are following the calling. My desire is for there to always be a wise and caring midwife for each woman who desires the care in her pregnancy and birth.
