Meet the Midwives

Hello! Thank you for your interest in our practice. We are not currently taking any new clients at this time. If you are interested in working with Gina, she will be practicing with Colorado Birth and Wellness. If you are looking for a home birth option, we recommend Julia at Generations Midwifery. Happy birthing!

Nedra Hale, RM, CPM
Associate Midwife
Operations Director
Founding Midwife

Nedra Hale is a Certified Professional Midwife and childbirth educator who has enjoyed successful and busy midwifery practices in both Arizona and Colorado since her licensure in 2008.

Nedra’s journey to midwifery began in the late nineties, when she became a certified childbirth educator. Soon, she began training as a birth doula, and discovered through this work that she believed she could better serve mothers and babies as a primary provider. Nedra attended the Arizona School of Midwifery and trained under wonderful, experienced midwives in Arizona, before practicing there. In 2011, Nedra moved to Colorado to care for her ailing mother, and began serving the home birth community in the Denver area as a Colorado Registered Midwife.

Nedra is the mother of four children, three of whom were born at home. When she is not busy working, she spends as much time as possible outside, hiking the beautiful Colorado trails. Nedra and her children enjoy learning through adventure at every opportunity, and when the weather isn’t ideal for adventure, she may be found sewing like mad to finish another project, or curled up with a book by the fire.

Learning Together

Education is an important aspect of Metro Midwifery. We offer a number of learning activities for clients, students, and practicing midwives.

Childbirth Education

We offer our clients a comprehensive series of childbirth instruction videos. Learn about the labor process, comfort techniques during labor, preparing for a home birth, planning for the unexpected, and more. These classes are free for Metro Midwifery clients!

Weekly Breastfeeding Cafe

We will meet (virtually on Zoom for the time being) Monday mornings at 10 am. Come spend the morning with Gina, an IBCLC, and others who are on this crazy journey with you! Pre-registration isn’t required, but let us know that you’d like to come so we can send you the meeting link and then we can notify you if we have to cancel for a birth.

Skills Workshops

We offer a number of skills workshops for midwives and student midwives. We offer classes for each of DORA’s additional license authorities, as well as a number of other learning opportunities. Classes may be prescheduled or arranged based on need. (Class size is severely limited due to COVID.) See the Events page for available workshops.

Testimonials

Gina and Nedra attended the birth of my daughter and I could not have been in better hands. I felt safe and trusted them both completely. They are a great team and it was so fun to work with them. I <3 Gina & Nedra!

Jessica

Gina was the midwife at both of my home births. My first son was born in August 2017, and my daughter was born in February 2019. For both births, she was knowledgable, calm, and caring. Most importantly to me, a mother who deals with gestational anxiety, she made me feel safe and positive during each and every prenatal visit. My births were beautiful, and an amazing experience. Thanks, Gina!
