About The Village Midwife

The Village Midwife Mission Statement is based on Matthew 25:40 ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’Meeting Your Baby for the First Time!

We believe that ALL people deserve to have a wonderful birth experience no matter their economic status, their race, their family situation, their sexual orientation, or their spiritual convictions.

When Jeni started working as a midwife, she knew that she was being called to minister to pregnant people and their families.  Many folks see the words “Minister or Ministry” and think of a roaring pastor on the pulpit, but the actual definition is “Service”.  The desire of our hearts is to serve pregnant people and their families.  As we teach student midwives, we pray that we are instilling in them a servant’s heart as well.

So why did we choose this verse to be the basis of our Mission?  We believe that it very simply states how we should treat each other – as if we were caring for the Lord Himself.

 Many Blessings!
 The Midwives

“Bottom line up front: best birth experience ever (out of six children)… Jeni took really great care of us and guided me through delivering our youngest child in our own home, which is a memory I wouldn’t trade for anything.”
