Our Mission

At Columbia Gorge Midwifery, our mission is to provide care to women and families who desire home birth in the Columbia River Gorge. 
Care with a licensed midwife is based on the fact that pregnancy and childbirth are normal life processes. Read more about the ‘Midwives Model of Care’.

Additional services we provide include Placenta Encapsulation and Birth Tub Rentals to families in the Columbia Gorge (The Dalles, Hood River, Cascade Locks, Corbett, Lyle, White Salmon, Husum, Trout Lake, Stevenson, Skamania and surrounding areas), SE Portland and Vancouver.

Many Health Insurance companies will cover partial or full payment for midwifery care. We can help guide you in handling individualized and detailed Verification of Benefits (VOB).  If you are interested in midwifery care and are either unsure of your benefits, or have been told that your insurance does not cover midwifery care, contact us to discuss your options..​.

About Me

Hi, My Name Is Adria.

I’m a licensed direct-entry midwife with certifications in National Midwifery, Oregon, Washington, and Texas. With experience since 2002, I’ve attended births in diverse settings, complemented by DONA Doula training and a 3-year midwifery course. Holding degrees in Mathematics and Graphic Communication, I’ve been serving the Columbia River Gorge community since 2011. My philosophy revolves around the natural miracle of childbirth. At Columbia Gorge Midwifery, I aim to build a community of healthy families, offering personalized care from prenatal to newborn stages, including home visits. Contact me for a complimentary consultation to discuss your needs and desires.
