Meet the Midwife
My name is Nikki Marterre. I am a licensed midwife in Virginia working from the Charlottesville area).
My name is Nikki. I am a Buddhist, mother, midwife, serious nerd and humanist. I am passionate about seeing pregnant people step into their health, their power and the transformative journey of birth and parenthood. This journey looks different for every person and every family, and while it certainly presents challenges, it also presents many opportunities for growth and joy.
I have a Master's Degree in Cultural Anthropology, which makes me appreciate birthing people from every different background. I have worked at busy birth centers in Texas and also trained with home birth midwives. I've run my own homebirth practice in Austin for two and a half years and am excited to offer my services now in Albemarle County, Fluvanna County, Greene County, Orange County, Louisa County.
When I'm not helping moms, families and newborns, I'm with my husband Josh and my four year old son. I have two dogs. I love gardening, hiking, herbalism, community gatherings, board games and cooking.
