Evaly Long, CPM, LM, discovered midwifery in 2007 while listening to a segment about midwives on the local public radio station. That was enough to set her on the path to becoming a midwife. Over three years she apprenticed at Sage Femme Birth Center in San Francisco, with Tres Lunas Midwifery homebirth practice, and Pacifica Family Maternity Center in Berkeley. Along the way Evaly and her husband welcomed their twin daughters, now nine years old, at St Luke’s Hospital, and their son in December 2014, born at home.
Evaly is most excited to help families build their knowledge and confidence through resources, information and building community. She firmly believes that informed choice and the midwifery model of care are an amazing way to empower parents, regardless of where the birth takes place.
Evaly lives on the beautiful island of Alameda and can be found on the beach with her kids on many sunny days.
