Krista's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped Miracle Midwifery serve more low income and at-risk clients by purchasing supplies and birth kits, hiring additional midwives and adding working capital to our business.

Krista's story

I was raised in a very large mexican, native american family steeped deep in the roots of community and acceptance. I am a graduate of Midwives College of Utah and hold an Associates of Health in Midwifery degree and am a Utah Licensed Midwife in addition to being a Certified Professional Midwife. I have 6 children and a supportive husband that is a war veteran and my greatest hero. The joy I find in working with families, discovering their needs and helping them to find a voice is immeasurable. I am humbled daily by the gifts provided to me in witnessing birth.
