Roots Birth & Women’s Health

Our Practice Model

As midwives, we care for women across the lifespan here in Missoula, MT. We are experts at caring for healthy women from menarche to menopause as well as low-risk pregnancies. We provide evidence-based, holistic care and work with you to make the best health choices for you and your family.

While Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) are independent practitioners, we believe in the power of collaboration. That’s why our midwifery practice is a part of Origin Health, a high-risk Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) practice. Because MFMs specialize in “high-risk,” and we specialize in “low-risk,” we can complement one another to provide you with the highest level of care possible. If you are having a healthy, low-risk pregnancy, you will be seen by your Roots midwives throughout your journey. However, if complications or variations arise, we will be able to seamlessly access the ultrasonography and specialized MFM consultations that you need, keeping you and your baby healthy. If your pregnancy does become high-risk and require MFM management, we will continue to be a part of your care. Additionally, if complications arise during your labor and birth, we have back-up support from excellent and skilled obstetricians including Dr. Fausett, Dr. Wyman, Dr. Miller, and Dr. Huntley.
