Meet the Staff and Midwives at Open House




Embrace Midwifery & Birth Center will hold their second annual Fall & Families Pie Social on November 5 for all previous, current and prospective clients to gather and celebrate the season. There are also weekly tours and meet-the-midwife sessions at 1 p.m. Tuesdays and 10 a.m. Saturdays.

        Embrace is the area’s only freestanding, midwife-led, waterbirth center. At the open house, you can meet the staff, including Linsey Kornya, CPM, LM, who is joining the team as a staff midwife after running a successful midwifery practice and small birthing center in St. Louis, Missouri.

       Kornya is dedicated to combining the art of midwifery with evidence-based medicine, witnessing and supporting the hard, beautiful and private work it takes to bring new life to the world. She has a passion for physiological, out-of-hospital birth, which she believes can be safe, beautiful, empowering and sometimes even transformative. Kornya also loves supporting clients through the first tender weeks postpartum and helping every family transition to their new normal as smoothly as possible.

Location: 130 Buford Rd. For more information or to schedule a tour, call 804-596-2229 or visit EmbraceBirthVa.org.
