Midwife, Doula, Birth

Amanda Counter and Daphne Welsh

are the midwife and wellness behind our name.

Our journey into women's health began in the summer of 2000 when Amanda was pregnant with her second baby and seeking gentle birthing options. Six months later Daphne was born unassisted at home.


Amanda went on to become a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). She provides community-based midwifery services including prenatal, homebirth, postpartum and well-care. Daphne grew up surrounded by wise women and birth work. She attended her first birth when she was 13 and found her passion for fertility awareness at just 17.  She is a birth assistant and  fertility, birth, and postpartum doula.

We are honored to be able to serve you throughout your childbearing years.

Our Vision...

I want a house with a crowded table. And a place by the fire for everyone.

-The Highwomen strive not only for knowledge, but for wisdom that comes from a life well-lived; to create and surround ourselves with peace and tranquility so that we may better listen, love, educate, empathize with, and include all who cross our path. Our purpose is to share knowledge and wisdom with family, friends, clients and acquaintances, instilling in them confidence, optimism, hope, and faith in themselves.
