In this episode we'll be speaking with Midwife Nicole Pegher
about important questions to ask a midwife during an interview. The
list of questions can be found here:
Nicole Cisneros Pegher is a Certified Professional Midwife and a graduate of Birthwise Midwifery School in Bridgton, Maine, an MEAS Institution. Nicole established South Shore Homebirth & Women’s Wellness in 2015, and has since served scores of families across the South Shore and Cape Cod region. Prior to opening her practice, Nicole spent the summer of 2014 in the Philippines, serving as a midwife in a high-risk, high-volume birth center, and honing her ability to manage complications as they arise in out-of-hospital settings. She has also worked in the Amish community of Pennsylvania, attending birth by gaslight. "If there is one thing that these experiences have taught me,” Nicole says, "it’s that birth is a universal language. No matter a women’s race, religion, sexual orientation or cultural background, women deserve to be respected and supported in birth. It is my honor to be a midwife."
