When It's Time, Call the Midwife.

Hiring a midwife is no longer a tradition of the past and as hospitals return to overly-stringent policies and restrict personal choice; families are turning to the safety and comfort of birth centers and midwives.
Not only is a midwife-assisted birth a better option for most healthy women, but because of the calmer environment, they baby receives many benefits as well.
Sandy's Story into Midwifery and Water Birth
Sandy was exposed to midwifery for the first time when attending a home school group meeting and she overheard two moms talking about their midwife. Her son, Josiah, was born just five months later and was the first documented waterbirth in South Carolina,
Her birth with a midwife was so different than what she had experienced in the hospital that she immediately enrolled in a midwifery training program.
Sandy licensed in 1999 and opened Carolina WaterBirth in Simpsonville in 2005. CWB moved to Greenville in 2021.
Sandy fights diligently for birth options and is currently the legislative liaison for the Palmetto Association of Licensed Midwives. She has worked with numerous other committees and was recognized for Exceptional State Leadership by the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives.
