Martina Craner  midwife

Martina has been a doula since 2005 and began her midwifery training in 2010.  She is a graduate of Midwives College of Utah and holds credentials as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives and as a Direct Entry Midwife (LDEM) through the state of Utah.

She has three children who were born at home with midwives.

I believe that pregnancy and birth are normal, physiological processes with lasting and enriching social, emotional, and physical effects.  The journey to motherhood has the potential to be the most transformative experience of a woman's life.  Women are empowered when they actively participate in making decisions about their own pregnancy and birth.
