Kathi has been a practicing midwife since 1992 and a Certified Professional Midwife since 1997. She is the founder of Dance of Life Midwifery and has served on the board of the Michigan Midwives Association for many years (six years as president) and is a member of the international organization Midwives Alliance. Kathi has 3 grown daughters all of whom were born into the hands of midwives.
Kathi’s philosophy: Bringing forth new life is an empowering, sacred event in a woman’s life. She needs to be nurtured, loved, and treated with respect. A woman must feel comfortable and safe to birth as nature intended in her own time. Her body holds the wisdom to conceive as well as the wisdom to birth. The birth of a child is also the birth of a family. I see the midwifes’ role as one of guardian over this process.
“Being part of many people’s lives during such an important time, and guiding women from maiden to motherhood is such an empowering experience. It fulfills me to get to do this over and over again” – Kathi Mulder, May 2016 Fulfillament Storyteller
