About the Midwife

Christiane McCloskey has been a practicing midwife for over 10 years. Her journey began with the birth of her first son and an introduction to the birth world in New York City in the late 1980s. She started working with Childbirth Education Association of Metropolitan New York, and quickly became a “birth groupie”. Along the way, she taught prenatal and postpartum exercise classes, started her own doula service (Brooklyn Doula Service) and supported many new mothers through their breastfeeding experience. After the homebirth of her second son, it became quite clear that she needed to take her experience and love for birthing to its logical conclusion. She graduated from the SUNY Downstate Midwifery program with a MS in Midwifery and was credentialed as an ACNM Certified Midwife.

Christiane believes that every woman has the right to a satisfying birth experience. She believes that nature and the woman’s own body have an instinctive “intelligence” that guides her through labour and the birth of her children. Women also have the right to choose, to be in charge of their health and their bodies. Midwifery support during pregnancy and birth is important, but it isn’t everything that she offers. Christiane also has experience with family planning and gynecological care.

A woman and her family need a clear and supportive voice to guide them through the amazing journey to parenthood. As a midwife, Christiane is uniquely suited to provide that guidance.
