Cherie Boettcher, CNM

Having worked extensively in both the hospital and home birth setting, Cherie founded the Birth & Women’s Center to offer the best of both worlds. Birth and Women’s Center captures the calm and loving essence of home birth while providing a safe location for your care, in the case a medical issue develops. Birth & Women’s Center has consulting physicians and a supportive, working relationship with a major university hospital three blocks away.

“Two hours and twenty minutes after waking up on my due date, I found out I was having undiagnosed twins. This was a surprise to say the least!  I birthed them naturally, but the second child who was breech had difficulties during delivery, and I was so very thankful that I had not had medication that may have affected my second baby. After that experience, I decided I wanted to become a childbirth educator, which later led me to become a midwife. My life’s work has brought great joy.”

To date, Cherie has attended thousands of births in her 30 years of practice. She has committed her life to providing women with a safe, nurturing environment where they may become mothers, and a supportive space where couples share in becoming families.

“I am very proud of the tremendous level of care which we can provide to mother and baby here at the Birth & Women’s Center. If a mother needs to be transported to a hospital during a home birth, you would have to go to a local hospital without a supporting environment to welcome you. Our established physician and hospital relationships offer an incredible layer of support. While complications are rare, being next to a hospital can be invaluable.”

“The experience delivering our second child at this birth center was absolutely, hands down the best decision I’ve had in my life thus far, besides marriage and motherhood of course. 🙂 Cherie is AS AMAZING AS IT GETS. She is open, honest, empathetic, understanding, and MOST importantly, the most experienced medical professional I’ve ever had.”

“This was our last baby, and I am sad to not come back. We love the BWC & Cherie so much! Thank you for making our birth experiences safe, memorable, and so uniquely special.”

“[Our delivery] was earlier than expected, but thankful Cherie handled our situation professionally, and her experience and expertise saved our baby’s life.”

The power and intensity of your contractions cannot be stronger than you, because it is you.
