Gennelle Miles

My name is Gennelle Miles. To give you a bit of background on myself, I am a woman of strong faith in JESUS CHRIST, a devoted wife of a Pastor, and a mother who would do anything for her children. I have always been interested in Birth Work, but being a mother of six, it just was not a possibility. Having experienced natural birth myself many times, I am keenly aware of the amount of support a birthing mother requires to obtain the “best possible outcome”. Three of my births (my girls) were in hospitals and I remember how uncomfortable I was, how alone I felt. Even with my husband, who was highly attentive and supportive, I felt like I was the only one going through this with a room full of strangers. My next 2 births were AMAZING. All of my boys were born at home, I was able to move about freely, smell everything and anything that was familiar, hug and love on my children, and just be in my own space. I distinctly remember feeling loved and supported and it gave me a sense of peace and calm. Even in the rough moments I was able to cling to that feeling. It wasn’t until my last birth that I got to experience what it is like to have MOTHERS present at my birth, women who had experienced what I was smack dab in the middle of. I watched as these women cared for me, cared for my husband, and doted on my children when I could not, the love in my home was palpable!! It was then after my last son was born that my desire of Birth Work was reawakened, I promised myself when my youngest turned 5 that I would pursue a career in the Birthing Field. When my oldest got married and subsequently pregnant with my soon to be grandson, I leaped at the opportunity to share with her all I have learned and experienced. I began to pour all this knowledge into her and promised I would be there to guide her through her own experience. Trust me when I tell you, I am not doing this ONLY for the sake of my own daughter (although I am very aware of how much support a young birthing mother needs) I am doing this for all mothers, who may not have access to loving, caring, knowledgeable, and experienced women to guide them through pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. I wish I had someone like me for the births of my older children I want to be that for her and for others. I thank you kindly and I am grateful that you are taking the time to read this. I believe with all of my heart that I am built for this work. I understand that it will be strenuous at times, but like I always tell my children; “Anything worth doing is worth working hard to complete!!”

Psalm 127:3

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward
