Brandi Wood, CPM
I am the mother to three young men (22, 19, & 17). Our oldest son was born in the hospital with a Midwife. Our next two babies were born at home with a Certified Professional Midwife (Alex in the water and Aiden on land). Home birth was life changing for our family. I embraced natural birth, breastfeeding, baby-wearing, and parenting. In 1995, I became certified as a Childbirth Educator and Doula. For four years, I worked at the Madison County WIC (Woman Infants and Children’s Program) as a lactation counselor. I am a Certified Professional Midwife. I have been a midwife and have operated Home4Birth since 2001. I have been a member of the Indiana Midwives Association since 1997. I became a Certified Community Herbalist in 2011 through Naturally Healthy. I hold my NARM Bridge certificate, and am a certified lactation specialist, and am attending National Midwifery College. I am a Certified Lactation Specialist.

I have been with Home4Birth since 2010. I am mom to wonderful children ranging in age from 21 years to 4 years. My first two daughters were natural births in a hospital setting which led me to seek other options to help families find better birthing experiences. My last two children were born at home. I completed doula training at Birthing Way Midwifery College in Portland, OR. After relocating to Indiana, I had my next two children at home with Home4Birth. I completed my apprenticeship in the beginning of 2013 and I am currently attending National Midwifery College.
I have four beautiful children ages, 17, 14, 12 & 7. I birthed all of my children naturally and breastfed them. My last daughter was born at home, in the water. My birth and breastfeeding experiences shaped my passion for natural birth and led to a career in Midwifery. In 2011 I became a midwife. I am a Certified Professional Midwife and a Certified Lactation Counselor. I am a preceptor for NARM and MCU. I joined Home4Birth in 2016.
