Teresa Cramer, CPM
Teresa is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). A Michigan native and Calvin College graduate, Teresa developed her interest for midwifery shortly after the birth of her first nephew. Since then, she has assisted families as a midwife, doula, and childbirth educator in Michigan, Maine, Pennsylvania and Boston. Teresa is passionate about providing families with holistic and informed care during their childbearing years. Valuing each individual family, Teresa is quick to listen and understand each client's needs to ensure a safe and empowering birth experience.
Teresa completed her midwifery education at Birthwise Midwifery School where she worked in a small homebirth practice in Southern Maine and a large volume homebirth practice in Pennsylvania amongst the Amish community. Before returning to Grand Rapids, Teresa was a primary midwife at JP Midwifery in Boston and provided back-up assistance to Ann Kilroy, CPM. Teresa's wide range of experience enhances her ability to provide culturally sensitive and evidence based care to each client and family.
When not working with families and babies, Teresa enjoys West Michigan life with her husband, Jeff, usually gardening, learning about herbalism, cooking, reading, crafting and playing at the beach.
