Since my earliest recollections, I've loved pregnant bellies. As I grew, my passion developed, and today I find myself serving women as midwife decades before I ever believed I would! I believe in caring for the whole woman - mental, emotional, spiritual - along with the physical, and that many of the "problems" that arise in birth can be overcome, or prevented altogether, long in advance, with thorough care and an ever watchful eye.
My husband and I are going on 15 years of marriage and have 6 magnificent treasures we call our children. Our first two were born in hospital with the remaining born at home in water.

A WARM and JOY filled congratulations to you! Welcome to this leg of the parenting journey.
It is my DELIGHT to walk with you during your pregnancy, labor, delivery and early post partum time and it is my sincere HOPE that along the way you feel equipped for the journey.
My name is Chelsea Fanchi. My husband and I have made our home on farm outside of Ashland WI and have six little darlings; four of whom we have the privilege of parenting, one who is waiting for us in Heaven, and one who is still growing in my tummy. The process of pregnancy, labor, delivery and post partum for each of my children has affirmed my belief in a woman’s sacred internal wisdom to birth her baby. I feel called to protect a woman’s birthing space and support her in the labor and delivery she desires.
With each birth I am INVITED to, I MARVEL at the strength and wisdom of the birthing woman. I would be HONORED to join you on your journey.
Assistant and Backup Midwife
Hello! I am Britton, CPM, mama, and wife. I have been drawn to things that grow for a long time, whether it be babies or plants. Call it what you want; a career, a passion, a calling: it is a lifestyle and I love it. I am blessed to have been involved in births all over the country, and to be a part of the stories that each of those families will carry with them forever. It is and will always be of the utmost importance to me to help inspire, encourage, inform, and support women to have the birth experience they desire; in their own way and in their own time.
with you in pregnancy
At Blooming Birth Company, it is our greatest joy to be with you and your family as you navigate the journey from newly budding to full bloom - that is, through early pregnancy, birth, and on into the great beyond.
We desire to be a different kind of maternity practice. A practice that goes beyond the status quo.
Midwife means "with woman." And that is truly the crux of our practice - we aim to join with you in attaining a
supremely healthy pregnancy and a birth that makes you just... glow.
That is why we've chosen our name to include the word "company." Not so much for the business sense of the word as it was chosen for its definition: the condition of being with another, especially in a way that provides friendship and enjoyment; a companion. May you never feel small or that your wishes are disregarded when in our care.
It’s your body, your baby, your birth! We are just the birthkeepers, keeping guard, while the beauty of life and miracle of birth unfold before all our very eyes.
