P. Fadwah Halaby
APRN, Certified Nurse Midwife
Fadwah has given birth six times at home and raised 5 more children over the years through her rich blended family experiences. She has lived in the mountains of Colorado and also enjoys the sunny lifestyle of South Florida. She is a Nurse Practitioner with a specialty in Midwifery (CNM). She has a BS with an emphasis in Nutrition from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. In the 1980’s and 90’s she studied childbirth education and then received homebirth training in Colorado. Her certificate in Nurse-Midwifery is from Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing, 2005 (now Frontier Nursing University).
Along the way, she worked in several Emergency Rooms and Labor and Delivery units. Once she completed midwifery school, she worked for a very busy, local OB/GYN group of 5 midwives and 4 MDs. She assisted over 1600 women to give birth at 2 hospitals in Palm Beach County (West Boca Medical Center and Bethesda Hospital East, now Baptiste Health) and frequently saw over 500 women in the office every month. It is her intimacy with the medical model of care that makes her such a great choice for birth at home. She is confident that when supported in a physiologic manner, pregnant people will birth gracefully, with freedom into the loving embrace of their families.
