Welcome to Metro Midwifery!
We are pleased to announce the creation of our new
home birth midwifery partnership!

METRO

From the Ancient Greek prefix (mētro-), from (mḗtēr, “mother”).

From (metra), medical English, via New Latin, via Ancient Greek
(mḗtra), “uterus”.

Meet the Midwives

With over twenty years of combined experience, Gina and Nedra are dedicated to providing safe, compassionate, and skilled midwifery care to the Denver metro area.

Nedra

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 with moms and babies, 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.

Gina

Gina Gerboth has been a midwife in Colorado since 2010. She is a Certified Professional Midwife (registered in the state of Colorado) and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She is a core faculty member at Midwives College of Utah. She has presented locally and nationally at the Midwives Alliance of North America annual conference and online for Gold Midwifery and the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives.

Gina holds a Master of Public Health degree with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health from the Colorado School of Public Health, a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Colorado in Political Science with an emphasis in Women’s Studies (1995), and is completing the requirements for a Master of Midwifery degree at MCU, as well. She is conducting her applied project on interprofessional collaboration and interprofessional education during emergency home-to-hospital transports.

Gina is married to her high school sweetheart, and is the mother of three sons, two of whom were born at home. When not busy with her practice, family, teaching, or other responsibilities, she enjoys knitting, reading, and spending time relaxing with friends and family.

Gathering

Community is an important aspect of Metro Midwifery. We hope to see you at some–or all–of the ongoing events!

Weekly Meet and Greet

Interested in meeting the midwives? We’ll be available on Wednesdays at 6 pm to talk to you about home birth, Metro Midwifery, or anything you’d like! We welcome prospective families as well as community birth workers during our Meet and Greets.

Childbirth Education

We will offer a three-week series of childbirth preparation classes every other month. Learn about the labor process, comfort techniques during labor, preparing for a home birth, and planning for the unexpected. These classes are free for Metro Midwifery clients!

Weekly Breastfeeding Cafe

We will meet on Monday mornings at 9 am for our regular breastfeeding group. Come spend the morning with Gina, an IBCLC, and others who are on this crazy journey with you!

Community Night

Once every other month we’ll host a community night where our families can get together together to see old friends, watch the babies grow, and share stories and tips from the trenches. Once a year we’ll take it to the park for our annual potluck!

Testimonials

As you can imagine, being a midwife myself and trying to choose the midwives who would deliver my baby was a stressful task. I knew too much, was too picky about how I wanted things done, but when I decided to have Gina & Nedra as my birth team I had total peace. They were skilled, patient, and believed in my body’s ability to birth even when I didn’t. I know, absolutely, that if they had not been my midwives I would’ve ended up transferring to the hospital…but with them supporting me I birthed a 9lb14oz baby safely…as a first time mom! Also, I’ll always remember hearing them laughing together in the background while I was in labor…extra points for a team who not only chooses to work together, but actually also likes each other enough to laugh & choose joy when they’ve been at a birth way too many hours!

Meridian

Nedra was my midwife for my third birth and Gina was the second midwife in attendance. The birth started fun and had some adventure at the end. My midwives were a joy to be around when things were “easy” and rock solid when things got bumpy. I adore and respect them both so much and am so glad to see them officially working together!
