Denise Midstokke, LM, CPM
Denise started her midwifery career in 1980 in the Santa Cruz Hills of California. Herself the mother of three children, Denise has felt passionately about her calling as a midwife from the beginning of her career. Denise opened her Sandpoint practice in 1985 and has since delivered hundreds of happy, healthy babies in the area.
Denise is certified with the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) as a Certified Professional Midwife and is also an Idaho Licensed Midwife. When Denise isn’t busy catching babies, she enjoys the beautiful Idaho outdoors via kayak, bike, or hammock, and hunkering down to knit.
Rachel joins us as a student midwife and is very excited to be serving and supporting the community. A Sandpoint native, Rachel spent ten years in Western Washington, and has been back in Sandpoint and working with Pend Oreille Midwifery for three years! Having attended over 200 births and completing her midwifery education, Rachel is pursuing licensure this year and will continue practicing in Sandpoint upon receiving her license!
Rachel is a homebirth and VBAC baby, and a passionate natural birth supporter. She is a musician, a foodie, and an adoring aunt to three beautiful nieces and the handsomest nephews.
