A CNM, since 2004, with a passion for providing family-centered care, Melinda sees care as a partnership between family and provider, which includes mutual respect and communication about concerns and options.
“I became a patient at Carson Midwifery in 2015 during a pregnancy. My midwife, Melinda, provided above excellent care to me during the time I was seeing her. She is always right on time with appointments, she is very professional while also being very compassionate and understanding, I felt very safe and taken care of with her and she went above and beyond to make sure any questions I had were not left unanswered. I now see her for support with my postpartum depression and anxiety. She has been extremely helpful in helping to guide me into finding healthy ways to cope with these things, I always leave her office feeling much better. She is easy to reach when needed, and is very helpful and patient. I definitely recommend her as a midwife, there is no one I would trust myself or children with more!”
“This is my first time doing a home birth or anything of the sort and this is my 3rd child. Melinda is absolutely amazing and I wouldn't go anywhere else again.”
“Great first appointment with Melinda! I'm looking forward to the rest of my pregnancy and birth with her support.”
