Tamy Roloff LM CPM
I am a state Licensed and nationally Certified Professional Midwife. I help women have their babies at home. I support women and their families as they navigate their journey though pregnancy, birth and the postpartum time, whether it's their first pregnancy or their 10th. I understand that each pregnancy brings new perspectives, concerns and desires and is a fresh and new experience. I honor this passage and facilitate the process for each individual woman to help her meet her particular unique set of needs.
I believe in a woman's right to make the reproductive choices that are best for her life. I offer respectful quality care for all women of all races, ethnicities, religions, gender identities, family structures, traditions, and sexual orientations. I make every attempt to offer inclusive care on all levels, knowing that I will never stop learning what that fully means in my attempt to be present and attentive to another person's individual worldview.
I am happy to discuss my philosophy and beliefs around birth, reproductive issues, sex, aging and life. Schedule an appointment or read my blog. I love to hear your thoughts, questions and perspectives. I also offer preconception visits for those wanting to make informed and conscious pregnancy choices.
I have 4 grown children and 14 grandchildren. I have attended most of their births and have been the midwife for a large number of them. I have done no greater work in my life than to be their mother and grandmother!
I believe in life-long learning and continue to make this an important part of my life. I am currently completing my Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership at Gonzaga University which combines two things I love - psychology and business. As well, I focus on traveling, especially out of the country. I love my passport! I find that my evolving perspective as a global citizen continually raises my consciousness about the Others that share the globe with me, and the importance of seeing beyond the box we call home - whether nationally, regionally or locally. I like my food to be local and my heart to be global.
I previously owned a natural food store for 25 years and found I missed the focus on food sourcing and quality, biodynamic, and organic food as an industry and mindset. I am now the president of the board of directors of the Main Market Co-op and have immensely enjoyed learning about the business of co-ops in and around my love of the natural and organic industry.
I retailed herbal tea combinations made with organic herbs for women and their families out of my store for many years. I still manufacture it and sell it on my website and to local customers. Wholistic Woman's specialty is Pregnancy Tea, Woman Support Tea and Lactation Tea. Check out the Teas link on here and read some of our great feedback on the Testimonials link.
