Our Indigenous Midwife Apprentice Program centers Indigenous students from Pueblo communities & throughout the Southwest. We believe re-seeding the tradition of Midwifery into Indigenous, Landbased, and marginalized communities is a vital aspect of community well being.

This Season of Giving we humbly ask for donations to help support our Student Midwife Apprentices.

Española's Community Midwifery

Origin Story

Breath of My Heart grew out of a community-driven process with input from local midwives & community members.

Community Midwifery

Are you pregnant and considering a home birth? We follow a Community Care Model that's compassionate & comprehensive.


Support our efforts to expand access to prenatal care and midwifery services in the Española Valley!

Located in Española, we aim to serve people in the Upper Rio Grande Valley region. Our service region extends an hour from our office location. We serve anyone who is willing to drive to us and plans to birth in Española as well as home birth service to Española, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Abiquiu, Ojo Caliente, the eight northern Pueblos, Embudo, Dixon and the high road to Taos (Truchas, Peñasco, Chamisal, etc).
