With offices at 2 Buck Road in Hanover, NH, Gentle Landing is an independent midwife-owned and operated women's health practice, with a free-standing birth center located just 5 minutes from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
Gentle Landing is now a CHOICE for healthy, low-risk people in search of access to full-scope midwifery care for their women's health and childbirth CARE in the Upper Valley of NH and VT; personalized CARE which is rich in time and education.
Since 2000, ten small New Hampshire and VT hospitals have closed their maternity wards. Five of these ten hospital obstetric units have been in the Upper Valley of NH and VT, resulting in a lack of access to choice in prenatal, birth and postpartum CARE as well as women's health CARE for low-risk, healthy people.
Eighteen years ago, I found myself pregnant with a beautiful daughter. My journey to midwifery started at that moment. Feeling and watching my daughter grow was amazing and inspiring. I was cared for by nurse midwives at DHMC and through their care I gained self-confidence and felt empowered to grow my daughter as well as my career.

Nurse-midwives are primary CARE providers that manage medical conditions within their scope of practice, provide educational support, and focus on prevention to increase the individual health and wellness of all women and families they work with!
