Personal and Professional Experience
My name is Bobbi Thompson and my beloved, Chris and I were married in July 1998. We live in South Central WI. with our 10 children.
We have had 10 successful, natural births at home, attended by midwives, family, friends, and our children. Our 1st and 3rd babies are in heaven which we lost through miscarriages. Six births were water births. #6 and #7 were twins born 9 1/2 hours apart, the 2nd being breech. My pregnancy's and births all held there own unique challenges and blessings! We utilized a lot of the techniques we learned through the Bradley Method and many other resources.
I have a great passion for birth, parenting and health. I enjoy inspiring mothers through formal teaching and personal relationships in the Rock County and surrounding areas. The birth process and mothering is a Joy to me!
This is not only my business but my ministry and passion, to spread joy and excitement surrounding these issues and to give families the support they deserve. We need to make some positive changes in this world and proclaim to everyone, especially our children, that they are blessings and that these can be wonderful experiences!
I thank God for this Honor!
