Below are midwives that are helping moms birth babies at home in the Fresno area:
Detrah Hele, LM I am a licensed midwife. It is my desire to promote the normalcy of birth and to support the birthing woman in the way and birth setting she feels is best for her and her baby. I will travel to cities in and around the Valley for prenatal, birth, and postpartum care and I also attend births at the Birth Place birth center in downtown Fresno.

Chanah Cossman, CNM, NP, MSN
I am a certified nurse-midwife with a home birth practice in Fresno. Three of my four children, as well as my three granddaughters, were born at home. I was “called” to be a midwife at 21 years of age and am now a certified nurse-midwife and nurse practitioner with a master’s degree in nursing, experienced in both home and hospital settings, having delivered babies at Fresno, Selma, and Hanford hospitals. All care is provided in your home, from prenatal visits to newborn exams. I am willing to travel up to 1½ hours from Fresno.
Please contact me on my cell at 559-244-9626. I prefer texting, if possible, since I am often at a home visit or traveling. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
