In 2018 Katherine and Meghan joined their resources, skills and hopes to build and offer the Upper Valley community 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 only one birth option. The joining of CPM Katherine and CNM Meghan brought a NEW option of blended models of midwifery to the Upper Valley communities.
With offices at 2 Buck Road in Hanover, NH, Gentle Landing is now open and a CHOICE for healthy, low-risk people in search of access to full-scope midwifery care for their reproductive health and childbirth/maternity CARE in the Upper Valley of NH and VT; personalized CARE which is rich in time and education.
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.
Katherine blends over 30 years of birth experience in a wide variety of settings and situations, a compassionate heart, deep listening and a scientific mind to offer comprehensive, creative and individualized care to each family she is blessed to work with. She is a fierce advocate for informed choice, committed partnership in care and evidence-based midwifery.
"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.."
DID YOU KNOW: Midwifery care focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions related to female reproductive health during their lifecycle, not just in pregnancy and birth? 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 people and families they work with!
WE HEARD YOU: Gentle Landing Midwifery and Birth center answers the Upper Valley's need for access to INDIVIDUALIZED CHOICE in birth and female reproductive health CARE.
