Midwifery
Hilary Korabik, CNM
Headshot for Hilary Korabik

Nurse-midwifery offers a safe, warm, and holistic model of care for women, transgender individuals, and families as they navigate pregnancy and childbirth, as well as health maintenance and health challenges. As a midwife, I have the honor of being present for the highs and lows in my clients’ lives: I receive new life into my hands, empower my clients to advocate for their own wellbeing, and walk with clients through loss and hardship. Midwifery care embraces and makes space for the beautiful rawness of humanity. That which is “the everyday” for midwives comprises, for our patients, the hallmark moments in their lives. Midwives are witness to it all and are able to see the beauty in these moments and reflect that back to their clients. I am honored to be trusted by my patients during these significant life moments and continually inspired by the strength, wisdom, and kindness of my patients.
