Welcome to Columbia Area Midwives
Providing home birth services to Mid-Missouri
Congratulations! Growing and having a baby are important life events for a woman and her family. Every pregnant woman and every newborn deserves respectful, knowledgeable, and skilled care that values them as individuals.
Columbia Area Midwives is a collaboration of midwives who offer a variety of services. Although we have individual practices, we assist each other in our work in order to provide our clients with high quality, continuity of care. We invite you to schedule an in-person interview with us to learn about the midwifery model of care, home birth, and get all of your questions answered.
Currently available in our group are: Dawn M. Finney, CPM of Birthroot Midwifery, Katy Miller CPM of Birthstrong Midwifery, and student midwife Julie Ferdman. Although Kim James has retired from active midwifery practice, she offers new health services available through Naki Wellness. Please note that some of the links will open to other websites.
Heart and Hands.....
From 2011 to 2018, Kim, Sarah, and Dawn practiced collaboratively. It was our great joy to work together serving women, babies, and their families in the Columbia and surrounding areas. In 2018, Kim and Sarah decided to retire from their practices to pursue other personal and professional interests.
To all of our clients, we sincerely thank you for making the choice to hire us for your care. We thank you for seeing the value in the midwifery model of care and the home birth services we offer and for helping us keep this option alive. It has been our pleasure to work with you and help you welcome the newest member of your family.
We are happy, though, that Columbia Area Midwives lives on with the continuation of Dawn's services plus the addition of new and up-and-coming midwives.
