Mirra Nerenberg started attending births as a labor doula in 2006 while she started her formal midwifery education at Birthingway College of Midwifery. During midwifery school, she started working at Alma Midwifery as a postpartum doula and office staff. She completed her apprenticeship; and after graduating from Birthingway with a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery in 2010, she continued working as a midwife at Alma where she was fortunate to be a part of so many wonderful families stories. In the fall of 2014, she decided it was time to start my own midwifery business to offer families in Portland a small, compassionate home birth practice. By collaborating with her community, Portland Natural Birth Midwifery was brought to fruition!
