    Biography

    While traveling in Africa, Carol was asked to help a woman in a jeep who was in labor. Carol was 27 years old, educated with degrees in psychology, premed, and anatomy and physiology, but had no idea what to do to help the woman or her baby. From that moment, Carol started the path to become expert in being skilled to help women anywhere in the world with the universal woman experience of childbirth and safe passage.

    Carol received her BS in Nursing from the University of Washington and her MS in Nursing with specialty in Midwifery from the University of Miami. Since graduation, Carol has worked with women and birth all over the United States, and with people from cultures all over the world. In Tuba City, Arizona, while in the U.S. Public Health Service, she assisted women of Navajo and Hopi descent. In Miami, she helped women from all over the Caribbean basin—predominately Cuban, Haitian and Latina. In Eastern Oregon, Carol founded a midwife service which cared for rural residents and migrant farm workers. She also cared for a rural population in upstate New York. In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan—where there was a record 300 inches of snow (!)—she had the lovely opportunity to work with the largest population of Scandinavian people in the United States.

    Carol is now back in her beloved Seattle and has been most fortunate to have joined this vibrant midwife group practice to care for the diverse multi-cultural population of South King County. In any one day, The Midwives at VMC often sees families from many countries around the world. Carol has kept her promise to herself to care for and help women from everywhere to have a safe, joyful pregnancy, childbirth, and mothering experience.

    Melissa did not always know that she wanted to be a nurse midwife, coming to midwifery as a second career. She worked in women's healthcare in many different capacities, particularly in public health, public policy, and international development. Melissa finally found her calling when volunteering as a lay healthcare provider in a free health clinic in Washington, D.C.

    Melissa feels blessed to be a midwife and is continually honored by the privilege of participating in the most personal and profound experiences of pregnancy, labor, and childbirth. She enjoys sharing knowledge with women and their families throughout their pregnancy and their childbearing years. She most especially relishes the opportunity to create trusting relationships that span many years and multiple pregnancies.

    Melissa lives in Seattle with her wonderful family. Her three children were all delivered by nurse-midwives.
