Meet our Midwives: Emily Sadri, CNM

Why did you become a midwife?
Becoming a midwife didn't feel like a choice for me--it felt like something I was always meant to do, and one day I finally listened. I've always stood in awe of witnessing the act of becoming a mother. From pregnancy, to parenting an infant and a growing baby, women are changing and evolving as much as their children are. In labor, these changes are huge and dramatic, and women are pushed to their very edges as they cope and work to birth. Then as new mothers, women work in subtler, but still difficult ways to adapt themselves to their new role. These changes and struggles fascinate me, and it is an absolute gift to have the job of supporting women during these monumental times.

Why did you become a midwife?
I have always believed in the strength and power of women and have been amazed by the awesome things our bodies and minds can do. I knew I wanted to help empower women so they could feel confident in making their own choices about whether to have children, and how and when to do so.  I originally wanted to be an OB/GYN, but then I discovered that midwives specialize in getting to know their patients and empowering women and families throughout their lives, and knew this was a perfect fit for me!
