New Hampshire Midwives Association

Amy Darling

My name is Amy Darling.  I hold a Bachelor's degree in Nutritional Science and have been a NHCM since 2001.  I trained as a direct-entry midwife in Scotland and became a United Kingdom Registered Midwife in 1998.  I moved back home to NH (leaving a piece of my heart in those beautiful hills) in 1999.  I have four daughters, all born at home, and I think being a mama is so precious!

I believe pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding are natural, normal functions of a woman's mind, body and spirit.  I believe a woman's body has been wonderfully designed.  I trust birth and marvel at the miracle of it all.  When allowed to follow its natural course, pregnancy usually results in the birth of a healthy baby and mother. 

I work in partnership with my clients, establishing trusting relationships during the months of prenatal care.  I fully support my clients in creating their own birthing experience.

I believe that families are strengthened when birth is integrated into life as a normal event.

Shiphrah and Puah, the midwives in Exodus 1 in the Bible, serve as examples for me.  Their faith in God strengthened them to have courage and do a good work, and God blessed them. I aim to bear these fruit in my profession:  Love (for the women and families I serve), Peace (in all circumstances), Joy (in celebrating new life), Patience and Self-Control (during trying times, long labors and times of fatigue), Kindness, Goodness, and Gentleness (always) and Faithfulness (for strength and blessing).
