Renee Terralumina LM, CPM
I am dedicated to providing exceptional care to those who choose me as their midwife. My attachment to this area began when I bought land to farm here (organic permaculture small scale production) in 2010. My journey to midwifery began when as a 20 year old soon to be first time mom wanting a natural birth without IV's epidurals, or invasive procedures and had to fight for that in a hospital (successfully). At the time (and where I lived) midwifery wasn't an option (and I didn't even know existed in the modern world) I just believed in my body, and in the process. I later had my 2nd-5th babies out of the hospital, the last 3 with amazing midwives (two in Seattle, one here in Lewis County). After the birth of my 5th I felt very called to the path of becoming a midwife. I worked with a wonderful preceptor in Yelm for 5 years (Kara Neff LM), spent some time as a student at Heritage Birth Center in Ancorage AK (and caught a baby during an earthquake close to the epicenter), and then worked with Laura Hamilton LM for the final few months of her career, and took over her remaining clients when she retired. I graduated from Midwives College of Utah. Took and passed the NARM, became a CPM, and then received Washington Licensure as an LM. I am completely dedicated to this path, and to the families I serve.
