Former Students

Adria Fuller, Student Midwife Adria Fuller, LDM CPM

Adria is a midwifery student with a heart for nurturing women throughout pregnancy and childbirth. She began formal midwifery studies in January 2011 with the Association of Texas Midwives. Adria completed DONA doula training in 2002. She has attended hospital births since 2002 and home births since 2008.

Some of her experiences include volunteering to care for women at pregnancy centers in California and Hawaii between 1998 and 2002. During that time, she also assisted/mentored single women at Heritage Home through their pregnancy and childbirth experiences.

She lives in Stevenson, Washington with her husband and three children born at home (with the exception of one transfer). She is now licensed in Oregon; see her website for more information.

Lindsay Kinman, Student Midwife Lindsay Kinman, LDM CPM

Lindsay is a wife, and mother of three. Her own unique experiences during labor, and the support she received, prompted her to embark on the journey of becoming a birth doula and now a midwifery student at Midwives College of Utah. She was a nursing assistant for six years but always desired to be working with laboring mothers and the birthing process. Her heart is truly for women to find the power they have within themselves to bring their child into the world. She is humbled to be a part of each mother's journey.

See her lovely childbirth education and doula website for more information.

Lindsay now lives in Silverton Oregon, and is licensed and running her own practice!
