Karen Lencke has been working with Gentle Landing Midwifery since the winter of 2012. Prior to her full-time apprenticeship, she attended Birthingway College of Midwifery in Portland, Oregon.
Karen grew up in Vermont to a family who has been here for many generations. Prior to discovering her winding path into midwifery Karen built a cabin off-the-grid, traveled the west coast and beyond, apprenticed with Deb Soule at Avena Botanicals in Maine, and spent many hours questing for mountain tops.
Karen's passion for midwifery is continually nurtured by a fascination with the human body, and a curious and creative spirit. Her presence with families in their birth process is one of gentleness and quiet-knowing.
