In 2018 Katherine and Meghan joined their resources, skills and hopes to build and offer Upper Valley communities with a freestanding birth center. This was in response to the closing of many small hospital birth centers throughout Vermont and New Hampshire, leaving families with limited birth option. The joining of CPM Katherine and CNM Meghan brought a NEW option of blended models of midwifery to the Upper Valley.

Meghan (She/Her)

Meghan Sperry is a certified nurse midwife and practices as an advanced practice registered nurse in both Vermont and New Hampshire. She has been in advanced practice since 2010 and works as the medical director of Gentle Landing Birth Center.

The midwives listened with such skill and intuition; they connected with our entire family, not just me and baby. Many friends back home were so uncertain when they heard we were planning a birth center birth, and I just couldn't explain how I had never felt more safe. "You just need to meet these would totally understand," I said time and time again.


I arrived at Gentle Landing at seven months pregnant. My partner and I were brand new to the Upper Valley. Our sweet boy was born peacefully and respectfully at the Birth Center after just a few short hours of labor. Our family is wholly impressed and forever touched by the love and care we received from our midwives!


As a first time mother, I could not have asked for better care in my pregnancy, birthing and motherhood journey. I feel extremely lucky to be part of the Gentle Landing family...

Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don't only give your care, but give your heart as well.
