Empowering Women Through Knowledge, Experience & Heart

Welcome to the women’s and childbirth support services of HeartSpace Midwifery, proudly serving New York’s Capital District, including Albany, Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga, and beyond.

We believe the best model of health care for a woman and her family includes:

  • Continuous and compassionate partnership
  • Acknowledgement of a person’s life experiences and knowledge
  • Individualized methods of care and healing
  • Complete and accurate information to make informed healthcare decisions
  • Consultation, collaboration, and referral with other members of the healthcare community, as needed, to provide optimal health care

We focus on empowering women through knowledge, experience, and heart. Our midwives are highly trained and have a combined 36+ years of experience. If you are interested in home birth, water birth, or holistic GYN services, we would love to support you.


At HeartSpace Midwifery, we’re committed to helping you have the birth of your dreams. Whether that’s a home birth, water birth, or at the hospital, we can help you through your pregnancy, labor, and beyond.

The midwives at HeartSpace are committed to an evidence-based approach to care. Rest assured you’re in great hands!
