My name is Heather Groves and I am a home birth midwife servicing the California Central Valley and the Outer East Bay regions.
I have five beautiful children, four of which were born at home with a midwife.
I began my training in 2004 with the midwife that delivered my fourth baby. She has been my inspiration and one of my most influential mentors. After her retirement, I then had the privilege of working as an assistant to two wonderful midwives at the Colorado Springs Midwifery Center for just over a year while simultaneously taking classes from a senior midwife who served in this community for over 25 years.
I then finished my apprenticeship and began my internship with Jessica Nipp of Holistic Home Birth. I am so thankful to have had the honor to work with so many different midwives and so many different moms. I really feel it has helped me to be more open to the possibilities of birth. I have, to date, attended over 300 births and the miracle of it still takes my breath away.
