Sybille's Experience
I am a professional midwife, certified through the North American Registry of Midwives, and offer homebirth services to Nantucket and Vineyard families. I have been involved with midwifery and homebirth for over twenty years. My interest in birth alternatives began in the mid 1980’s after experiencing the joy of birthing my own two children at home on Nantucket. I have studied and trained in home, birth-center, and hospital settings, have been to over 550 births, and since 1997 have personally welcomed on average of 2 to 3% of our island born babies per year as they enter into this world. (National average for homebirth is 1%)
