All things are possible! I am Kimberley Homer: a Healer, a Florida Licensed Midwife (LM), a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), a Childbirth Educator, a Yoni Steam Facilitator, a Fitness Instructor, and so much more. Some of my certifications include Lactation Counselor, CPR, Neonatal Resuscitation, Blood Borne Pathogen, training in Placenta Encapsulation, Birth Emergency Skills Training (B.E.S.T.), HIPPA Compliance, Zumba, MiXXed Fit and ongoing others. I’ve had the opportunity to work in birth center settings, such as The Miami Maternity Center, Hollywood Birth Center, and Magnolia Birth House! (You will still find me down at the Magnolia Birth House from time to time!) I’ve even had the opportunity to work with private practices such as Natural Birth Choices, Spirit of Life Midwifery, Global Birthing Care, Amma Midwifery, Bellymama Midwifery, and more! Learning from some of the most talented midwives in South Florida has truly made an imprint on the type of midwife I am today!
Choosing to uproot my life from Miami to Tallahassee was not solely a choice, but a duty to serve communities that did not/do not have access to a Black Home Birth Midwife. It's especially important to many black and brown families, because a Black Midwife can tilt the balance between life and death for African American infants and their mothers. Why? The CDC reports that African American mothers die at 3-4 times the rate of white women, and the mortality rate of Black infants remains higher than any other ethnic group in the U.S..
My practice, Crowning Midwifery, Birth Services, & Beyond isn't just about the Midwifery Model of Care, it's about incorporating traditional and culturally competent care. We have Doula Resources, Fatherhood Support/Prep classes, Prenatal Fitness classes, Childbirth classes, Herbal Alternatives, and Beyond. My Crowning Midwifery team are experts through training and experience when it comes to working with families during their childbearing cycle.I have also made it a point for my team to visually reflect the underserved. Although based out of Tallahassee, Florida, I serve from Pensacola to Jacksonville, and some southern parts of Georgia.
We provide care and support ALL families. We also do our Due diligence in making sure our community has access to us as well!
Why am I a midwife? My journey into midwifery hasn't been a traditional one. It has been a gifted dream I have had since I was around 6/7 years old. I said, at that age, to my friends "...when I have a baby, it's going to be in the forest, by a river, with all of you holding hands and singing..." followed by "...and i'm going to help deliver babies for the rest of my life..."
A dream, now reality. How does a mere child that has not been around pregnancy, let alone labor nor birth, come up with that concept is truly beyond my physical understand, but it was planted, harvested, and manifested deep within me. I am humbled by my midwifery journey…grateful to be in a field that I daydreamed about as a child…and thankful to those who helped me grow into the Midwife I am today!
I also have a Womb Wellness business called, Cultivate A Better U, (CABU) in which I operate fully as a Healer and guide of womb related matters. You can learn more at www.AlwaysCABU.com, because you should Always Cultivate A Better U!
I have had segments on news stations for both of my businesses, in addition to articles and/or blogs.
