Northeast Kansas Midwifery Service
Anita Woods, CPM <><
Welcome! I am Anita Woods, a Certified Professional Midwife providing nurturing homebirth midwifery care for your body, mind & soul. I am located in Leavenworth and serve northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri, including Kansas City, in a small, solo midwifery practice where visits are an opportunity to relax, sip a cup of tea, get to know one another, and develop a trusting friendship with the personal, one-on-one continuity of care that is the hallmark of homebirth midwifery. I have a specialty in vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) and focus on gentle, non-interventive, parent-directed care where there are no forced testing or exams, and no time limits for pregnancy, labor or birth for a healthy mom and baby.
Attending births since 2004, my style is a loving, attentive, “wallflower” style of midwifery, practicing the art of invisibility at birth, respect of a mother’s space, and the use of natural, non-allopathic remedies for health & healing. I am certified in Neonatal Resuscitation and am a 2007 graduate of Ancient Art Midwifery Institute which focuses specifically in training only out-of-hospital midwives. I have served as a Christian midwife in missions work in the Philippines and am the former president of the International Cesarean Awareness Network.Contact me today to make an appointment for a free consultation, and I look forward to getting to know you.
