New Beginnings Midwifery LLC

My name is Merrilyn Reeves.  I am a Certified Professional Midwife, licensed in Idaho.  It has been my pleasure to work with birthing moms since 1996, as both apprentice and midwife.  During those years I have been privileged to work with some wonderful midwives.  I maintain current certifications in Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP), Healthcare Provider CPR/AED, Advanced EMT,  and Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), and Licensed Midwife (LM) in Idaho.  I also participate regularly in independent study, conferences, midwifery study groups, peer review, and other educational opportunities as appropriate. 

I view pregnancy and childbirth as natural, normal events in a woman’s life and important milestones in the life of a family.  Pregnancy is a wellness rather than a disease process, and natural childbirth is both a privilege and a right.  The  trust relationship which develops between a woman and her midwife during the months of prenatal care has a very positive effect when labor and birth happen.  Women do possess a God-given ability to give birth.  When they feel safe and protected, eat, drink, and move about as they please during labor, the birthing experience concludes without complications about 95% of the time.  Happy empowered, moms mean happy babies!   


My birth care package includes prenatal, birth, postpartum, and newborn care through six weeks postpartum.  Most prenatal and postpartum visits last about one hour and normally take place at my home/office, although in some circumstances visits may take place at the client's home.  The focus of prenatal care includes assessment of mom and baby, as well as nutrition, exercise, and herbal helps as appropriate.  Home visits include the 36 week visit, labor and birth care, and the 24 - 48 hour postpartum visit. 


My service area includes any location within 1 1/2 hours of Plummer, Idaho.  Currently I am serving women in the Moscow area, in addition to those who live closer to Plummer.  Under some circumstances, I may be able to assist women who live farther away.
