New midwifery clinic to open in Des Moines


Des Moines will soon be home to a new option for midwifery care. On Sept. 1, the Des Moines Midwife Collective will open its doors and will become the first clinic in Central Iowa to retreat from cash-only pay and accept insurance for home birth midwifery services, according to a release. It will also host one of the only free-standing lactation clinics in the metro. The Collective was founded by Caitlin Hainley and Emily Zambrano-Andrews, who are both certified nurse midwives. “Both Emily and I saw a huge need in the community for midwifery services that were affordable and accessible to all. Right now, women are looking at cash-pay-only options that are thousands of dollars out of pocket, which is neither affordable nor accessible to the majority of the community – and we want to change that,” Hainely said. The Des Moines Midwife Collective is located at 3500 Second Ave.
