WomanWise: Homebirth & Women's Health

Serving women & families in Maryland, Southeastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and Southern New Jersey...

Karen Webster, CPM, LM

My Philosophy

I believe that pregnancy and birth are healthy and normal events in a woman's life. As a midwife, I feel that it is my honor and responsibility to nurture and create the space for the women I serve during the journey to motherhood. I recognize that in pregnancy, many women experience great physical, emotional, social and spiritual changes, and it is my intention to support women and families in this time of transformation.

I are committed to compassionate, women-centered care in which both midwife and mother are actively engaged in the decision-making process. As midwives we offer our skills, experience and loving attention as well as our deep trust in and respect for the birth process. I expect that mothers choosing homebirth are willing to take responsibility for their own health and well being and that of their baby. It is my hope that in doing so, women will discover the power and potential that birth holds, and carry it with them throughout their lives.

I provide traditional midwifery care to women & babies during the childbearing year.
