About Anita

nurturing home birth midwifery care for your body, mind & soul


"And whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me."


Anita Woods is a direct-entry midwife since 2004 and certified by the North American Registry of Midwives since 2007 as a Certified Professional Midwife. A member of the Kansas City Midwives Alliance, I am certified by the American Heart Association/American Academy of Pediatrics in neonatal resuscitation, and I am a graduate of Ancient Art Midwifery Institute, specifically dedicated to training homebirth midwives. I have attended over 250 births, including an internship at a Christian charity birth center in the Philippines.

Home Life

My home office is located in Parkville, MO, and I have lived in the greater metropolitan Kansas City area my entire life. I am currently homeschooling my youngest child in preschool, with four other grown, homeschool graduates. I attend a non-denominational, Bible-believing Christian church in Shawnee, Kansas, and enjoy geneology, camping, movies, and reading my bible.

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean

A former board member of the International Cesarean Awareness Network, my specialty is in vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). I have had three cesareans and two VBAC's, one of them a home waterbirth. As a mother who breastfed collectively for 11+ years, including extended and tandem nursing, I am supportive of all forms of attachment parenting, and am an advocate for co-sleeping, cloth diapering, non-vaccination, intact boys, the quiverfull lifestyle, and other forms of natural parenting.
