Your Friendly Neighborhood Midwife

31 January 2012
Nile Nash

Ladies and Gentlemen of my lovely community,

I, Nile Nash, am one of the three ladies that own this wonderful shop, Gravel & Gold. I am also a certified nurse midwife, a nurse practitioner of women’s health, and a registered nurse. So much of our intention with Gravel & Gold is to create community around our passions. I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is seeing mamas and babies in the shop, or getting to hold wee ones while mama tries on clothes, or recommending any book by Ina May. And Gravel & Gold, both the shop space and you as a community, have always been a support to me on my path of becoming a midwife and starting my own practice.

So, I’d like to share with you that I’ve launched a fundraising campaign to help raise money for my new practice, Mama Lion Midwifery! I’m providing home birth and well woman GYN care to the community of San Francisco. Help me raise money for supplies like a microscope, speculums, and other goodies, rent, and a pro bono home birth for one lucky family. The campaign runs until the spring equinox on March 20th, when the day and night are finally equal and the light continues to grow. Think of all the lovely witchy metaphors that abound when you DONATE to my campaign!

Tell your friends and family:


P.S. Nilie caught all three of these beautiful babies in one week! Hazah!

    I am so happy to read this news! I love your shop and frequent it whenever I am in the neighborhood. I was preparing to have a home birth however the little babe was taking his time and came at 2 and half weeks so we ended up having Guy (the name of my son) in the hospital. I really enjoyed my time and learning during my pregnancy with Femme Midwifery practice. It created a deep interest in midwifery and natural birth, of course in choosing to have a homebirth in the first place it was there, but the practice just ‘fueled the fire.’ I wish you all the best. The work you are doing for woman as well as for artist is incredible and quite inspiring.
