Midwives

Our dedicated midwives focus on the childbearing years, naturopathy, women’s holistic health care and wellness for all phases of life.

Alda Mills-Marques, AA, CBCP, DEM, is our founding director. She is a certified professional midwife candidate having completed the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) personal evaluation portfolio (PEP) 2016-2021. National NARM written exam eligible.

Alda is a traditional out-of-hospital direct entry community midwife and holistic health care and wellness practitioner. She is a San Diego Mesa College graduate; and student on hiatus at The School of Natural Healing.

Since the age of eight, Alda looked forward to becoming a “baby doctor” for her future career. Life took her on a different route (working in healthcare and substitute teaching) and motherhood of three path. Eventually she made it to her midwife (baby doctor) roots. Her love for supporting women and their families through birth work began in 2011. She comes from generations of midwives and holistic healers in her ancestral line. Midwifery and naturopathy is in her DNA.

The Aramaic word Haya (pronounced hi ya) was chosen to honor Alda’s heritage and give her practice a deeper respect. Haya means life. We are life midwives. Helping to bring in new life and providing holistic health care and wellness throughout all stages of life.

Alda enjoys wild-crafting, learning through continuing education in the field of midwifery and naturopathy, paper art-crafting, rock collecting, walking, dancing and yoga. She is a member of Call The Midwife Utah founded by Midwives College of Utah’s founder Dianne Bjarnson.
