Dianne Bjarnson, otherwise known as The Traditional Midwife, has practiced as a midwife for over 40 years assisting over 1,400 births.
The Traditional Midwife has a Masters Degree in Midwifery, is a Certified Professional Midwife, and is licensed in Utah as a Direct-Entry Midwife.
Traditional midwifery is the art and practice of providing natural and holistic childbirth-related health care. It includes techniques that have been passed down through the centuries, as well as modern, innovative techniques that are consistent with long-standing principles of midwifery. These midwives are women helping women in honesty, kindness, gentleness and understanding. They respect the preferences and desires of the women and families who request their services and encourage the active involvement of family members in the child-bearing process. In everything these midwives do, they promote respect for women and the sanctity of motherhood, family and home. Dianne wishes to emulate the compassionate service of the biblical and pioneer midwives who preceded her and she is proud to carry on the tradition of “Guardian of the Hearth.”
