"I have known Hilary since her enrollment in the Shenandoah University Nurse-Midwifery Education Program in Winchester, VA in fall of 2013. From our first meeting, I could feel Hilary’s energy and passion to support women’s experience of normal physiologic birth, bringing with her years of experience as a certified doula, childbirth educator, and birth advocate. As a midwife who attended my first 14 years of practice at a birth center and in home birth settings, I immediately was aware of Hilary’s similar calling to support women who are looking for more personalized, engaging care during their pregnancy and birth experiences. Birth is a right of passage! I believe birth is about finding the right place, with the right person, at the right time. Hilary exemplifies that provision of midwifery-led care, with seamless access as needed. I am so proud to learn of Hilary’s endeavor to extend safe, satisfying, personalized care to families in her community! She is truly a midwife’s midwife!"

Professional Recommendations 


"When your favorite midwives team up in a practice - you consider having another baby even though your family has long been complete. Seriously. We love Hilary and Heather both and have been lucky enough to witness their profound midwifery care at many births over the years. And adding Leslie and Andrea to their practice literally just cements the Dream Team. We couldn’t recommend Loudoun Homebirth and Healthcare to the women and families in Northern Virginia and beyond, more. In fact, three of them are our very own Arrow Advisors who represent the utmost expertise and professionalism in their respective fields. We are thrilled about this union of great minds, wonderful humans and superb midwifery care. Bravo, ladies!"

"I'm so excited that Hilary is starting a home birth practice in Loudoun!  It is vital that women have the option to give birth to their babies in the comfort and safety of their homes.  Hilary is a well trained and devoted midwife who has always kept to her goal to be a certified nurse-midwife who offers home birth services.  I'm thrilled to watch her practice blossom and grow!"
