Stephanie Williams, LM

Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), Masters of Midwifery (MSM), Licensed Midwife (LM) with the State of California

I started my midwifery career with the goal of serving under-resourced areas around the world with compassionate and loving midwifery care. Academically, I studied with National College of Midwifery while training clinically in a busy charity, birthing center in the Philippines. After completing my training, I spent the next 7 years working as a midwife and setting up primary care clinics in rural Africa (South Sudan and Mozambique) as a missionary. Upon returning from Africa, I completed a Masters of Midwifery degree with Midwives College of Utah. I have had the joy of practicing as a midwife since 2009 and have delivered over 600 babies.

Krista Wurlitzer, PUS, BSM

I started my midwifery journey as a little girl, watching her sister grow twins in her belly. Flash forward about 18 years, and I am now convinced that this has been a life-long calling. Between books I read as a pre-teen, documentaries watched as a teen, and experiences I had oversees, everything has pushed me toward practicing the art of midwifery and providing safe, holistic care to families in Northern California. Though this career is by no means the pinnacle of my life, it is very much the cumulation of all the promises and experiences of my youth.

When I first began midwifery, I thought my greatest joy would be to hold hot, fresh, steamy babies and watch them grow. Little did I know that my true passion would be education and changing the trajectory of health- physical, emotional, and mental- for my clients. I had no clue just how much joy I would personally experience as I empowered and observed families in their most vulnerable and powerful moments. It is truly an honor, and I cannot imagine doing anything else with my professional life.

I am currently in the process of studying for my board exams, and when passed they will allow me to become a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and therefore a Licensed Midwife (LM). I am so excited to serve Redding as the midwife I have always dreamt of being. I’m almost there!
