LORRILorri is a direct-entry Licensed Midwife with over 25 years of birthing experience. She had all of her own 5 children out-of-hospital, and was a nursing mother for about 10 years, so she came to the profession from the perspective of an experienced and well-researched mother who understood the value of all that comprehensive midwifery care offers to families. A spinal injury resulted in several years of disability, which caused all of her previous education and professional licenses to expire before a surgery put her back on her feet. Within weeks she went back to college and was a top honor student while taking triple credit hours to satisfy the prerequisites for re-admission to midwifery school. She completed the rigorous Washington state requirements and testing for practicing midwifery and received her license in March 2008. Her formal education includes a degree in Pre-Med Biology, undergraduate study at Seattle Midwifery School, and graduate study at Midwives’ College of Utah which will soon result in a Masters of Science in Midwifery as well as CPM certification. Her areas of midwifery research are primarily in nutrition during pregnancy, and she is developing her PhD research study on perinatal Omega-3 and Vitamin D therapy. Since establishing a clientele over two states and two major mountain passes, covering approximately 40,000 square miles, Lorri has retired from medical clinic work to devote full time to her and Kristin's home birth clients, and to training beginner midwifery students from various schools and backgrounds. She also hand-codes and maintains the business websites for most of the area midwives. Her own businesses are Highland Midwife Birth Services and Silver Sage Herbal Tinctures in Goldendale, Washington.
