Owner of the Cincinnati Birth Center and experienced midwife, doula, and lactation consultant, Meghan Nowland brings expertise and a confidently calm energy to her clinical approach.
“I grew up as the fifth child in a family of fourteen, and have always been around babies and loved them. In 2010 I caught my niece at my sister’s home birth in Virginia, which led me down the path of becoming a birth doula and midwife. I have a bachelor’s degree in midwifery from the Midwives College of Utah and moved to Cincinnati with a passion to improve Ohio’s maternity care. I regularly volunteer teaching community childbirth education classes and for the Kentucky Home Birth Coalition, and am a founder of Ohio’s chapter of National Association of Certified Professional Midwives. Before moving to Ohio I lived in San Antonio Texas for two years and worked at Birth Center Stone Oak and with home birth midwives Robin Rabenschlag, Julie Hatfield, and Janet Dirmeyer. I earned my CPM certification in 2014, and have been practicing as a home birth midwife ever since. In 2017 I became certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Most recently I’ve been involved with legislative efforts to increase access to midwives and serve on the Kentucky Midwives Advisory Council. “
