portland home birth midwife

Mirra Nerenberg, LDM, CPM, IBCLC

I midwife families from my expertise, having been attending births since 2007, and my belief in our bodies, knowing first hand the intensity and magic of birthing.

I know most birthing people feel able to birth at home when they are supported, educated, seen and trusted.  I strongly believe we become empowered with this kind of midwifery care.  This is the real reason I wake up in the middle of the night.  Nurturing growing families to make informed choices during this vital time in their lives can change communities.  And I am here to help with this transformation.  I love sweet newborns but I am a midwife, through in through, to support families, lending my many years of experience and skilled knowledge, for a safe and empowered birth.

I am also a believer.  I fiercely believe in choice—informed choice for all families to decide their own healthcare.  I have believed in midwifery and the truest nature of birth for as long as I can remember. I was born at the Baltimore Birth Center and was told by my mother that birth is normal.  Decades later, I still believe birth is normal and our bodies are strong. My own homebirths have further solidified this deep trust and knowledge.

When I’m not witnessing strong families give birth, you’ll find me biking or hiking with my kiddos and of course, when I’m not on call you’ll find me deep in the woods hiking or backpacking.  I feel strong and grounded when I’m surrounded by trees and the mountains.  My husband and I also enjoy playing in our garden and kayaking when we can find the time. Sometimes I even find time to hone in on my sewing and quilting skills.  The rest of the time, I’m most likely talking, meeting, educating, or sitting in quiet reverence of birthing people!
