Tessa Fisher

Licensed Midwife

Tessa’s journey began with motherhood. Desiring as few interventions as possible, and to birth unmedicated in the intimacy of her own home, she hired an expert in normal. A midwife.

As a result of these experiences, she wanted to be this option for other families; investing in their lives and supporting them in feeling empowered in their decisions for their bodies and their babies. Midwifery is a relationship and a partnership. It is personalized care. Here she is today, having cared for many families, in many walks of life, through each of their individually unique pregnancies and births.

Tessa and her husband Wes have two children, both born at home with midwives. She is a graduate of Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery, licensed through the State of California Medical Board, and certified by the North American Registry of Midwives.
