Birthing Way Midwifery
We are a home birth practice serving north Georgia. This is our way of reaching out to our community and our clients to provide information and support. If you are looking for someone to attend your home birth, please call to schedule a time to speak with us. Call early as we tend to book up quickly. If we can't help you we can probably find someone who can.
Beth Miller: I have been attending births in this area for more than 20 years as a Traditional Midwife. A combination of things led me to become a midwife. My personal birth experiences, my love and respect for women and the role of women in the world, and my disgust for the current state of childbirth within the medical system.
I believe that birth is a healthy, normal body function and that when left alone to find their own rhythm, women will give birth with power and dignity. I believe that birth can be an opportunity for spiritual and emotional transformation. It is my task as a midwife to assist a woman as she finds her way along this path to motherhood.
Since 1992 I have been providing comprehensive prenatal care, homebirth support, and attentive in home postpartum care. My goal is to help my clients create the birth experience they want.
Rachel Hart: I am a Certified Professional Midwife. I moved to Atlanta from Las Vegas with my husband and four children in 2008. I am a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a Bachelor's degree in English. I began my midwifery journey through an apprenticeship training program in 2005 and began my own practice in 2007. All four of my children were born at home, the last birth unassisted. I joined Beth at Birthing Way in 2010.
Helping women realize their true power and potential as a woman and mother through the birthing process has been a privilege. I have really enjoyed attending births with the lovely families here in Georgia. I also support the birth community as secretary of the Georgia Midwifery Association and as Membership Director of the Georgia Birth Network.
Jaimy Klinko-Dunn: I had noticed a common theme among friends and family who were pregnant and had just given birth. They were pushed through a system focused on numbers and dates and never seemed supported as an individual. I knew there must be a better way to take care of women. In 2012 I trained to become a postpartum doula. The following year I began studying midwifery when I realized many of the problems in the postpartum period could be directly related to how women were giving birth. I believe when women are being cared for physically and emotionally prenatally, reminded that their body is made to give birth, and supported in labor, they are better prepared for giving birth, taking care of a new baby and recovering in the postpartum period.
I was born and raised in Ohio and moved to Atlanta in the fall of 2016 to begin an apprenticeship with Birthing Way. I chose the apprentice model as I felt learning how to care for women is taught best through experienced midwives. I am a certified birth and postpartum doula and this is my second apprenticeship with midwives, my first being with a traditional midwife in Ohio who worked primarily in the Amish community.
