Tiffany Carter Skillings, CPM, CLC has been practicing as a midwife and lactation counselor since 2014. She graduated from Bates College with a B.A. in Sociology in 2004 with a concentration in Criminology. Shortly after graduation, however, she shifted her focus to healthcare and now has over 10 years of experience working in healthcare settings such as primary outpatient care, a regional hospital and a tertiary hospital. While she learned so much in these settings, over time she began to desire to work in a more holistic, healing model and in 2010 discovered midwifery. After 3 years of both didatic and clinical training in attending births at home and at freestanding birth centers in Maine, Tiffany graduated from Birthwise Midwifery School, a MEAC accredited program and sat for the NARM exam to become a Certified Professional Midwife.
I now serve as a faculty member for Birthwise and have taught the following courses: Normal Prenatal Care, BLS for Healthcare Providers, Waterbirth, Green Birth and Cultural Sensitivity. Addtionally, I am currently working on completing my requirements to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
In 2012 Tiffany became the first Certified Green Birth Educator™ (GBE™) in New England through the International Maternity Institute. Green Birth Education supports families in finding healthy, sustainable and affordable solutions for every day living to ensure optimal well being for a lifetime.
Tiffany is deeply committed to providing care that is individualized, evidence-based, and empowering. She supports her clients in discovering their own inner strength and wisdom as they labor and birth in their own way, on their own time. She truly believes that Informed Choice is the cornerstone of midwifery care and encourages her clients to actively partner with her in the decision-making process.
Tiffany is a member of International Maternity Institute, North American Registry of Midwives, Maine Association of Certified Professional Midwives, United States Lactation Consultants Association, and The Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice.
Tiffany lives in central Maine with her husband, Jameson and 2 year old son (who is still nursing!), Liam.
