Birthing adventures midwifery is a practice of two midwives (Aliya Caler, CNM & Kara Schamell, LM) who provide the SF Bay the very best of what midwifery has to offer in our diversity of training and breadth of experience. We navigate birthing adventures on your terms, in the privacy of your own homes.
Partnership enables us to cultivate and model a culture of balance by nourishing ourselves, each other and our clients one family at a time. Clients develop a relationship with both of us throughout pregnancy and have the benefit of two midwives’ worth of knowledge to lean into on your journey.
We both meet with you in your home as a team for the initial visit and then alternate prenatal visits until the 36 week team meeting when we come together again to prepare for your birth. We share on-call time so that we are not each on-call 365 days a year but whenever possible we attend births together. In the postpartum we continue on that every other visit schedule so that clients have the opportunity to process their experience with us both.
