I’m Erin Sweeney, your local midwife in the Wood River Valley. I provide complete midwifery maternity services, bio-intelligent women’s health, womb and pelvic healing and plant medicine in the Wood River Valley.
My work is rooted in a fierce commitment to women’s collective, primal wisdom and our healing traditions.
I safeguard normal birth at home, helping women to create embodied, self-directed births and mothering experiences.
Take a look around, and please reach out to let me know how I can support you!
There’s no place like home! Traditional Midwifery care holds the space for women to give birth instinctively in the comfort of their own homes, in their fullest power and authority. Contemporary midwifery brings modern tools into the birth room when appropriate. In alignment with the wise woman model, I weave multiple midwifery paradigms together for safe, culturally appropriate, woman-centered care.
The body is always striving for flow. Chronic hormonal, mood, and pelvic organ problems can self-correct with treatments that honor the exquisite intricacy of the female body. I help women to understand and correct the root imbalances underlying their symptoms. The more common conditions I work with are:
My dispensary contains an extensive collection of tinctures, dry plants, oils, flower essences and supplements. I wildharvest or grow and produce many of my most commonly used remedies and custom formulas. Providing you with bio-regional and sustainable medicines is my priority.
I offer seasonal friday drop-in days at the office during the winter and spring. All are welcome to stop by and pick up plant medicine from 10-3pm. Please call ahead to confirm as I am sometimes out attending a birth or doing home visits.
