"Erin was part of what my husband refers to as our "rock star" home birth team. My home birth was an HBAC and I was so nervous. We went through all the what ifs and Erin was a rock through everything! Even when my labor when on for more than a day she never left my side! As my doula she was amazing! For for next home birth the choice was easy Erin as my apprentice midwife! I trust her, she knows her stuff and she will use all her skills to make my birth the most amazing experience possible! If you are even thinking about a home birth TALK TO ERIN."

"I just want to thank you again. That was, by far, the most comfortable pelvic exam I have ever had. Normally, I plan to take it easy for the rest of the day so I can curl up on the couch because I feel crampy and sore. Last night, I was able to lead my Girl Scout troop in doing yoga for nearly an hour."
"Thanks so much!! By the way, Eldon and I are still amazed at how awesome you and Abby were during birth! Really appreciate the way you handled everything. It was totally worth driving up there for the last 9 months.. Thanks again!!!! I wish you lived closer [😊] I would recommend you to all my friends!"
"My childbirth was just as we wanted it and Erin and her assistant did everything possible to be there as fast as possible and take care of all our needs. During postpartum appointments she also offered advice and help on breastfeeding, postpartum depression, and many others. I can say that all the time I felt like family and not simply as someone who take care of my pregnancy. I would highly recommend beautiful beginning home birth to all women looking for outstanding care."
My name is Erin Walker and I am a homebirth midwife in the Lehigh Valley. I'm from Bethlehem, and living in Nazareth now, where my home office is. I have a bachelor's degree in biology & political science from Moravian College and I've been studying midwifery since the spring of 2012, graduating from WomanCraft Midwifery Program in 2014. I had my first home birth in August 2012 and it was an amazing experience that helped confirm my calling in midwifery. I'm on the governing council of the Midwives Alliance of PA (www.pamidwivesalliance.org) and the northeast representative, so if you're interested in midwifery, or need a midwife near you, please contact me. I've trained under four area midwives with over 60 total years experience, including, Jennifer Timbs, a wonderful homebirth midwife who has served the LV and northeast PA for over seven years. I love helping families have beautiful home births and would love to be a part of your birth experience!
For the vast majority, pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding are natural, normal functions of life. While these are seemingly physical events, the effects of the mind, spirit and emotions of the woman, as well as those closest to her and at the birth, cannot be underestimated. Home is the perfect birth location for those families wanting a natural, intimate birth experience, surrounded by those they love.

Please visit the services page for more details. I offer these services to all families and individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or family structure. I strive to always be respectful of the cultural, spiritual, religious and social needs of my clients.
