Seed to Sprout Midwifery is a homebirth midwifery practice located in Durango, Colorado with midwife Alyssa Maynard. I offer comprehensive prenatal care, homebirth services, postpartum and newborn care as well as breastfeeding support and well-women care in Durango, Pagosa Springs, Cortez, Farmington, and everywhere in between. I moved to Durango in 2016 and have been practicing as a Registered Midwife in Colorado and a Licensed Midwife New Mexico ever since, first with Joy with Life and currently with Seed to Sprout Midwifery.
My philosophy as a midwife is rooted in a deep belief that all families deserve to be heard and respected throughout their pregnancy, birth, and childbirth experience. I draw on the Midwifery Model of Care and my years of experience as a counselor to help create an informed and empowered relationship with the families I serve. I provide comprehensive risk-assessment, informed consent, and above all an abiding respect for the natural process of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. It is my goal that all families feel empowered and informed to achieve the experience they want. While most women can experience a natural childbirth with zero to minimal interventions, I provide families with constant risk- assessment and consultation as needed to ensure the safety of both mother and child. I do not apply a "one size fits all" approach to midwifery care and aim to ensure that all families feel their needs, hopes, and wishes are met.While birth is a fundamentally normal process, it can be transformative, empowering, and sometimes an unknown experience. I enjoy partnering with families to help them understand the body's process of creating and nurturing life while helping them tailor care that fits . After years of experience providing care in hospitals, birth centers, and home I have found a love for helping families welcome new life in the comfort and safety of their homes and am dedicated to ensuring that this practice remains available and accessible to all.
