Midwife (n): with woman
Midwives have been serving pregnant people since the beginning. We are the second oldest profession. We have existed in every culture, across space and time, since the dawn of human kind. We have wiped the brows, albeit big ones, when we were catching babies in caves. We have been there to hear the birth songs of women across the plains. We have heard babies sweet first cries at dawn in every city and town across the world. We served pregnant people when it was en vogue, when it was illegal and when our very lives have been at stake. We served pregnant people when no one else would. We have always been here. We are medically professionals who expertise is caring for low-risk, healthy people during the child-bearing year with individualized care uniquely suited to their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and cultural needs
"When I hear that a friend of mine is pregnant, there will never be another thought in my mind than to recommend Naomi! ❤️
I came to Naomi extremely late in my pregnancy after awful experiences with another clinic. From my first time speaking with her on the phone, she made me feel 100% comfortable and safe, and never stopped checking in to make sure I was okay. She is extremely capable and aware, and her herbal knowledge is superb! My birth progressed extremely quickly, but Naomi was confident and sure the entire time and even as things didn't go as expected, she kept things going smoothly.
If you're even CONSIDERING a home birth, come see Naomi!!"
"Naomi delivered our third child. She was there every step of the way. She not only cares for the mother and baby, but she looks after the dad and other kids as well. She did an excellent job and the after care is something you will never get in a million years at the hospital. I trusted her with the lives of my wife and daughter and would definitely recommend her."
"We had a beautiful home water birth with Naomi. She is extremely intuitive, works well under pressure, and nurtures a prenatal, birth, and post-partum experience that is inclusive to the whole family’s wants and needs. She goes above and beyond and I absolutely recommend her for anyone wanting a home birth. She has taken wonderful care of my family."
I could go on for days about how absolutely wonderful Naomi, Serenity, and Betsy are.
Every step of the way I felt fully supported and informed.
As a plus size mama, finding care that is comfortable is extremely difficult. They made me feel right at home. I never once felt judged or looked down on for any of my decisions or choices and they were always there to hold my hand when I needed it most *and still Are *
If you are considering a home birth, I most definitely recommend VCM.
"These are strong, powerful women who invest in empowering other women. My birth with them was the most incredible experience, it was more than I could have dreamed because of their love and support."
"I highly recommend VCM! We moved from out of state over halfway through my third pregnancy and I was able to interview Naomi and Serenity online. I was impressed with them immediately and chose them as my provider after that interview. Meeting them in person was even better, I feel as though they were my first friends in a new city. Coming for an appointment is like catching up with friends. They were caring and allowed me to make my own informed choices throughout pregnancy. I also really loved their use of herbal medicines and tinctures throughout my pregnancy, delivery and postpartum care. My labor and delivery was also a wonderful experience. VCM gave me the support I needed while also allowing me the space and privacy I wanted. Welcoming my first daughter with VCM was an experience I won’t forget. They also provided comprehensive care postpartum. I’m so grateful to have been able to use VCM and call them friends!"
"These midwives are the best! I've never felt so cared for by a healthcare professional. I was hesitant with a home birth at first, but after meeting and getting to know Naomi and Serenity I felt empowered to do it. I can't recommend them enough!"
"Best group of midwives in Washington hands down! Everyone at VCMs are down to earth, easy to click with, and most importantly easy to relax with. They're like family once you start care with them. They explain everything very thoroughly so you understand and no question is ever a bad question. Spent a lot of time laughing with these ladies and I can't wait for my next pregnancy just to do it all over again ❤ OH! AND THE BEST PART!? THEY TAKE STATE INSURANCE!!!!!!
"You simply cannot find a better care team in the area. Naomi, Serenity, and Betsy are THE DREAM TEAM. Not only do they come with an arsenal of experience, but they are the most kind, considerate, loving, passionate, and dedicated birthing team I have ever had the pleasure of calling my providers and friends. They made me feel at ease and at home during my prenatal visits, and completely safe and in incredibly capable hands during my home birth and postpartum period. Please don’t hesitate if you’re looking for a birth team, because you won’t find better than Vancouver Community Midwives!"
"The first time I met Naomi I knew she was my midwife and that her crew were my people. I had wanted a home birth with my first child but ultimately chose the hospital route. Nearly five years later, I returned to my initial desire for a homebirth and it was an easy decision because of my immediate connection with Naomi and the environment of her practice. My experience was low stress and fun. Naomi and Serenity created an environment of patience, candor, non-judgemental support where I always felt 100% in control of every decision I made. My husband was resistant about having a homebirth but when he met my crew, he was on board. My second birth at 42 years old was an extraordinary experience, free of fear and anxiety."
"Our experience with VCM was nothing but great! Naomi O’Callaghan was a phenomenal midwife who always made sure my my husband felt included and even did some hands on feeling of the baby (in my tummy of course). I personally am scared of a lot of things like giving birth yet Naomi made sure to make me feel empowered, strong, and like I could accomplish anything. Even though our birth plan didn’t go as we thought (which most don’t anyway) Naomi showed up, and did her thing. Our sweet baby was brought into the world in loving and gentle hands and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I will he using her for all future births. Oh and did I mention she’s hilarious and has a great personality?"
