Welcome to Highland Birth Support

This business is dedicated to providing better birthing experiences to families in the Potomac Highlands and surrounding areas of West Virginia. As a Homebirth Midwife, I work to help families educate themselves and make their own best decisions throughout the childbearing year. I would love to support you with holistic care and mentorship focused on your needs and goals.

Without reservation I believe that everyone should have access to better birthing options and comprehensive support, and my service offerings reflect that. In addition to being a Certified Professional Midwife, I have also worked to diversify my offerings to include homebirth midwifery care, doula support for hospital births, breastfeeding support and education, and herbal consultation. If you would like support, book a consultation online today.

Questions for the Midwife?

If you have questions or you would like to purchase services, please contact me via email at highlandbirth@gmail.com or use the contact tab. I’m happy to help.

So, you see the little line on your pregnancy test, now what? Next steps can feel uncertain, but I am happy to consult about your birth options whether or not you desire a homebirth. Using my experience as a doula, I am happy to share my knowledge of local hospital birth options. Above all, I want you to feel confident in your choices! Let’s build better support for your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Let me help you plan…

Hope is not a plan. When things feel uncertain, hoping for the best doesn’t always work out in our favor. Value yourself and your experience and make a plan with me! Plan for a better pregnancy, birth, postpartum, or lactation journey. Consider this an investment in yourself and your family.

You can book an appointment for planning alone! While I love to help you come up with a Birth Plan, that’s not all I can offer. I commonly meet with parents prenatally in order to plan things such as: communicating with your provider, working towards a successful VBAC, pumping when you return to work, building health and resilience into your postpartum, talking to your little kids about new baby, and more! In summary, I’m here to help. Book a consult now!

I did an herbal consult with Maureen with a focus on fertility support. She is caring, thorough, and her main focus is learning about each client’s goals. She tailors everything to each individual and is knowledgeable in all her areas of practice. My only regret is living far away from her, as I would have 100% chosen a home birth with her over any other option.

Thanks so much for your kind words Andie!

Maureen is capable and confident, and has an extremely calming demeanor. She walks into the room and with her presence of mind and experience helps to de escalate the situation and instantly help things move forward positively. Her knowledge of current, research-based lactation support information is unparalleled. Hopefully someday all providers will put in the time learning and staying current on best practices in the way that Maureen does. Don't register for that fancy baby container or wipe warmer, go ahead and set yourself up for success by booking a consult with Maureen to help you reach your body feeding goals. Best baby related "purchase" ever!

Thanks so much Bailey! Loved working with you
