IMG_0772 (1) Hope Medford worked as licensed midwife and doula, and has attended over 400 births in the U.S., Indonesia, and Africa, with a degree from the National College of Midwifery. Her approach to birth has always been natural and holistic, focused on out of hospital care. Her specialties include massage, nutrition, movement, and waterbirth~ she has taught natural birth education in Peru, Brazil, Bali, and Scotland as well as the US.

Hope is both a visual & musical artist as well.  She has been a drummer for over 20 years, with international experience of playing fireside & professionally for well over 100,000 people, with the band Medicine for the People. Hope loves teaching rhythm and drumming to women as a tool of empowerment to build both inner strength, voice, and trust.
Exploring the weaving together of women’s healing arts and the creative arts has been her passion.  As we tap into our creative nature, we find our connection to source, and through this, we enable ourselves to express authentically & fully in the birth place.
Birth art goes back millennia, and labor rhythms have been passed down since ancient Egyptian times…there is wisdom in our ancestors stories.
