Hello! My name is Brittany Hiller. I have spent most of my life living in the Boise area. My husband and I have been married for 29 years and have 3 children. I fell in love with birth through the birth of my own children. I became a DONA-certified doula in 2002, and began my journey in empowering women to make informed choices about their own pregnancy and birth. In 2003, I attended a birth as a doula for a friend of mine whom had chosen a birthing center birth-this began my journey into midwifery.
During the birth of my friend, the midwife in attendance asked me if I ever considered being a midwife, and at the time, I really thought that it wasn’t possible. I already had completed a Bachelor’s degree in social work at Boise State University and never thought I would go back to school. However, God had other plans for me. The more involved I became in birth and the midwifery community, it became clear to me that I was to become a midwife. I enrolled in the National College of Midwifery, and in 2007 obtained an Associate’s degree in midwifery and became a Certified Professional Midwife.
Since then, I have had the opportunity to work with several different practices and midwives in the Treasure Valley. In 2009, when the midwifery law passed in Idaho, I became a Licensed Midwife. I have had the opportunity to serve over 850 families. I am a preceptor for the National College of Midwifery, Midwives College of Utah, and Mercy in Action College of Midwifery. I am certified in Neonatal Resuscitation, certified in adult CPR/First Aid, and I have sat on the Idaho Midwifery Board as Region 3 Representative.
The call to midwifery and every birth I attend is a complete honor. In my free time, I love hanging out with my adult children and husband. I also enjoy working out at the gym, gardening, traveling, and hiking with my dogs.
