Welcome to Birth With Hope Midwifery. My name is Tori Hope Dennis. I have been married 19 years and have three homeschooled daughters. All three daughters were born with midwives, and I nursed all three children. I garden and grow herbs (comfrey, lavender, rosemary, yarrow, basil, plantain, and much more). I am a Certified Professional Midwife licensed by the state of TN. My goal is to provide exceptional services for women and families specializing in home birth experiences. Please browse my site and feel free to contact me with any questions.
It is legal in Tennessee to birth in homes with a Certified Professional Midwife. I enjoy being a homebirth midwife. I am a midwife for the Mennonite and Amish communities in TN. I grew up near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where the Amish people were commonplace for me; therefore serving the Amish of McNairy county, Tennessee, is a dream come true for me. In addition to serving the Amish, I serve the home birthing women of McNairy county, Hardin county, Lawrence county, and Wayne county (southern middle Tennessee area). Also, I serve northern Alabama families (families travel to TN from as far as Birmingham and Huntsville). As a midwife, I provide: prenatal care, a birth tub, choices of water labor/waterbirth, birth stool, birth ball, herbal and essential oil information, breastfeeding support, postpartum care, newborn exam, and much more. Contact me for a free consultation to learn more. If you need a Tennessee home to use as your own, I have a guest home available at no cost to you (located in Saint Joseph, TN).
Hospital Doula Services:
I have been attending births as a doula since 1989. I certified as a labor doula with CAPPA in 2004. Currently, I provide doula services at ECM in Florence, Alabama, for women who prefer hospital birthing. A birth tub is available, therefore you may water labor at the hospital. Currently, you may not water birth at ECM as per hospital policy, but you may water labor until 9 cm. At 9 cm, you move to the bed and deliver in bed. I have been a doula at ECM for vaginal breech birth, vaginal twins, waterbirths, water labors, epidural births, and breastfeeding support. I have 23 years of experience!! I have taken the required hospital doula training classes, and I am on ECM's referred doula list.
Arrange a consultation to discuss what birth options are available to you.
