LennySue Tinseth, LM, CPM ~ 530-694-2182 www.alpinemidwifery.com
I have been assisting families with the birth of their babies at home for 25 years. I believe birth is a normal physiological process and that intervention is rarely needed in low risk mothers and babies. As a licensed midwife, I carry all the medications and equipment for unexpected emergencies. I provide complete care throughout pregnancy, birth, postpartum and the newborn period as well woman care including pap tests, hormonal education and treatment for all ages and menopause.

Sacred Space Midwifery and Holistic Health
Tiffany Hoffman, CPM (LM pending) 775.338.0755
85 Continental Dr. Reno, NV 89509
Offering comprehensive prenatal, labor, and postpartum care, as well as miscarriage care and support. I attend your birth in the comfort of your own home. The option of waterbirth is available.I view birth as a natural, normal process to be welcomed and embraced as a testament to strength, love and how beautifully women’s bodies are meant to work. Each childbearing person’s path is unique and worthy of respect. My practice is an evidence-based midwifery practice, utilizing research to guide decision-making. However, research does not take into account the individual history and experiences of each woman, and there are occasions when personal preference or circumstances have a woman choosing something outside evidence-based care. I respect and support the ability and right of women to choose what they feel is best for themselves and for their family. I offer holistic, patient-centered, mother-friendly care. I limit my practice to 3-4 births a month so that I can provide my clients with stellar, individualized, safe care. Childbearing people of all genders, orientations, religions, ethnicities, and cultures are welcome. Diversity in all areas is embraced.
