Mountain Midwives provide prenatal care, home birth services, postpartum housecalls, and childbirth education. Pat Schwaiger is the owner and senior midwife. Pat has been attending homebirths since 1982. She is a Registered Nurse, Certified Professional Midwife, and Licensed Midwife, in both Montana and Wyoming. Presently, she serves as Chairperson for the Wyoming Board of Midwifery.
Our name, “Mountain Midwives”, is in the plural, because there are always apprentices and other associates working with Pat.
We attend births across southeastern Montana, as well as northern Wyoming. Please see our website for a map indicating the region we cover. Mountain Midwives have offices in Billings, Montana and in Powell, Wyoming.
Our basic approach to pregnancy and birth is to help the new mother discover her own power. She herself is the main decision-maker throughout her pregnancy. She herself determines the place, position, and people that will be a part of her birthing experience. We are there to support those choices, to guard the sanctity of birth, and to keep it all safe.
