Valerie Monterrey, CPM
I am a mother of six children, I have been studying midwifery and child birth in the home setting for the past 18 years. I have worked in Washington, Texas, Michigan and Pennsylvania under senior midwives practicing my clinical skills. I have participated in 180 out-of-hospital births. I am trained in the use of emergency medical procedures and equipment in the unlikely case it becomes necessary. I am working in NWPA, as a trained direct entry home birth midwife. I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).Certified by North American Registry of Midwives.

Valerie Monterrey's Care Philosophy

I believe that women are the key to healthy families and thus society. I believe women are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. I Believe that they are able to birth naturally without intervention except in the most extreme and rare cases, about 5% of cases. I want to educate women to become responsible for their own health, to learn all that they can about their bodies and about procedures often proscribed for them and their families. I want them to be aware of their alternatives. According to the WHO World Health Organization about 5-10% of cases require specialized obstetric services.
