Michael-Ann Gabaldon, CNM
Midwifery came to Ann Gabaldon as a second career later in life after giving birth to her own two children. The changes a woman goes through during pregnancy, labor and postpartum touched her deeply through her own experience which led her to become a doula, L&D nurse, lactation consultant, and now midwife. She has a deep appreciation for collaborative, informed care that supports a strong foundation for women as they take their first steps into motherhood. Ann has a special interest in preventative care with a focus on mindfulness, diet, and exercise as well as holistic postpartum care with specific attention to the unique breastfeeding relationship between mom and baby.
Ann spends her free time with her girlfriends and family. She enjoys hiking, backpacking, trail running, and playing golf. Her favorite part of the day is sipping coffee on her deck and watching the sunrise. This is her time for self-care, self-reflection, and space for meditation.
