Valerie Peery CNM, MSN

I am a certified nurse midwife (CNM).  I had all my six children at home, five boys and a girl.   I have worked off and on as a labor and delivery nurse and as a well baby nursery nurse in and around Philadelphia where my women were high risk with many problems.  I had many useful experiences and learned much about problem pregnancies and deliveries.
From 1994 to 2001, I worked for Birth Care in Quarryville part-time.  For the past several years, I have had my own CNM business, doing home birth and attending births at Ephrata hospital.  My daughter Emily was my secretary and birth assistant, but she decided after several years that she wanted to return to early childhood education.  My sonís wife Melissa (and my granddaughter Riley) have helped in my office for several years.

When Birth Care was looking for another full time midwife, it became clear to my husband and me that we should merge my practice with Birth Care.   I continue to attend births at Ephrata Hospital, at home, and now at our beautiful new birth center. I love working with Maribeth and Jill, and I appreciate Birth Care doing the administrative side of the practice, a part I never enjoyed.

My husband Chuck and I have been together for 37 years, and we have six wonderful grown children, three of them married, and four wonderful grandchildren.  We live in Paradise and raise Border Collie dogs for fun.
