*Important Changes for 2015*
Jenny Derugen, CPM, LM, Senior Midwife and Co-founder will no longer be signing SCMC contracts for clients due in 2015. She will however, continue to serve homebirth families as an independent midwife with her new private practice “Jenny’s Midwifery Care”. Please contact Jenny for more information by calling 757 622-2791 or emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org and look for her new website www.jennysmidwiferycare.com coming soon. You can read more about Jenny’s decision here.
Terri Hewitt, CPM, LM, will continue to serve homebirth families through Seven Cities Midwifery Care, LLC. Our dedicated & skilled apprentice/assistant, Jenn Green, will continue with SCMC through the transition and she looks forward to serving homebirth families as assistant (and future midwife once her requirements are completed and she is licensed as CPM) through Seven Cities Midwifery Care, LLC.
Throughout 2014, “Meet & Greets” (prospective client interviews) will continue, some with both Jenny and Terri present. If you know in advance of your provider preference, please contact that midwife directly and let them know of your preference to check for their availability. Otherwise, we are happy to meet you together.
As always, Jenny, Terri and Jenn look forward to serving you and your family with sensitive and compassionate care!
We focus our practice within the Seven Cities of Hampton Roads; Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News, Hampton and many nearby areas of southeastern Virginia. We are two Certified Professional Midwives (CPM) that are licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia, authorized to specialize our midwifery care for homebirth families.
Giving birth is a very sacred and intimate time for families. We honor your individual process and provide gentle support and experienced guidance to enhance your confidence to birth your baby with dignity, in the safety and sanctity of home. Our mission is for you to be empowered as you journey forward through pregnancy, labor and experience birth as the natural “rite of passage” that it was designed to be. We wholly support The Midwives Model of Care.
Prospective clients are invited to come for a no-cost interview (Meet & Greet)with the midwives to learn more about our services.

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers…strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
