About Christy

Christy Feiker, CPM, LM

Christy's desire to care for mothers and babies has been a life-long journey. She spent time in high school volunteering in a newborn nursery. In this hospital setting, she felt a strong desire to see families bonding with their babies. Christy's awe with homebirth began in 1995, when she met her first midwifery teachers. They were a mother-daughter team of midwives in Wisconsin, who taught her the practical aspects of midwifery. Next, Christy worked with a Certified Nurse-Midwife in California and attended home deliveries as an assistant and hospital \ deliveries as a doula. In 2002, her son Kainoa was born at home on Oahu. She also had the good fortune of attending births with a long –time traditional midwife in rural Maui. In the fall of 2004, Christy managed births under supervision at a busy birth center in El Paso, Texas. She completed the process to become a Certified Professional Midwife in February of 2005. Christy returned to Wisconsin in the spring of 2005, joined the Guild of Wisconsin Midwives and began practicing as a primary midwife. In May of 2007, she was granted a midwifery license in Wisconsin. Christy is married to an amazing husband and father Knut Feiker. He is a NUCCA chiropractor and has taken care of many pregnant mothers and newborns. You can see his unique work at knutfeiker.com. Their daughter Solveig was born at home in 2009. They are expecting their third child in February of 2011.

As of November of 2010, Christy has attended over 295 births, 60 of them being under her primary care. She welcomes any questions about her background, education, and how she manages complications. Christy is certified in Neonatal Resuscitation and Adult CPR. She attends a minimum of 30 contact hours of midwifery continuing education every three years. This includes a peer review to fulfill the license renewal requirements.

"In my practice, I am committed to serving families in a way that fosters a sense of wholeness. I find it empowering to choose the way we give birth. Through this process, babies are brought into the world in such deeply personal ways. This lays the foundation for newborns receiving the deep bonding that is expected as their birth rite."
