Noel Fernandez

Midwife​

Noel is a WI licensed, certified professional Midwife, and mama to 4 wonderful, unique kiddos. She felt called to midwifery through her own experiences of pregnancy, birth, and early parenting. After apprenticing with 5  different Midwives, across 4 states, for over 8 years, she is thrilled to be settled in her hometown of Madison, WI providing home birth services for families across southern WI. 

Noel is a fierce advocate for individualized, family-centered care and true informed decision making. She is deeply committed to helping all families feel supported and respected during their pregnancy and parenting journeys.

Having both personal and professional experiences with pregnancy and infant loss and postpartum mental health illnesses, Noel feels especially drawn to working with families walking those challenging paths.
