Christine Mehl, CPM, LM
It is an honor to guide clients during pregnancy's transformative journey. I have always known about the beauty of homebirth and midwifery care, since I was born at home myself. However, it wasn't until I was learning about U.S. midwifery history while in college, that I first felt the calling to become a midwife.
I am a graduate of Midwives College of Utah, and hold an Associate of Science degree in Midwifery. Midwives College of Utah is a MEAC-accredited midwifery program, and as thus, I am skilled in and meet the requirements set forth by the International Confederation of Midwives.
During my four year midwifery clinical training, I served homebirthing families in Fargo, ND - Moorhead, MN, and interned as a midwife at free-standing birth centers in Utah (Better Birth) and Alaska (Integrated Wellness & Center for Birth). Throughout my clinical experiences, I was privileged to learn from six Certified Professional Midwives (CPM's), two Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM's), and an Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OB/GYN).
I maintain certifications in CPR/Healthcare Provider BLS (Basic Life Support) and Neonatal Resuscitation. I am a member of Minnesota Council of Certified Professional Midwives (MCCPM) and Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA). Prior to entering the midwife profession, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Community Health Education, and served clients as a doula.
I am married to my best friend, John, and together we are parents to our six children (Jena, Aodan, Espen, Cormack, Fletcher, and Matthias) and one fabulously spoiled senior greyhound, Abby. I have birthed five of my babies at home with the guidance of a midwife. I enjoy nature walks with my family, reading, helping my brothers-in-law at their bakery (Mehl's Gluten Free Bakery), and binge-watching the occasional TV series with my husband.
