The home of Spiritual Midwifery

For over 40 years, The Farm Midwifery Center has provided a very special service for mothers, babies and their families.

Women are treated with love and respect, empowering them to fulfill their desire for natural childbirth in a sane and safe home setting.

The holistic approach provided by The Farm Midwives addresses not only physical but also emotional, spiritual, sexual and cultural aspects of each individual.

We believe that childbearing is a significant event for every family and that every mother has the right to a safe and satisfying experience.

Prenatal care, support during labor and delivery, and postpartum supervision are provided by a group of seven midwives credentialed as Certified Professional Midwives (CPM) by the North American Registry of Midwives.

Our midwives are also Certified in the State of Tennessee by the Division of Health Related Boards

Practice guidelines are set by the Tennessee Midwives Association.
