Damaris Pittman

My path to midwifery came when my sons, Christian and Elias, were born with the help of midwives. Wanting to combine my background in healthcare as a chiropractic assistant and x-ray technician with my desire to advocate for childbirth choices, I followed my heart to serve women and their families through midwifery. Foremost in this service is education, informed consent and shared decision making.

Damaris Pittman, LM, CPMIn 1991, my husband and I packed up our two boys and moved from North Carolina to Texas so that I could attend Maternidad La Luz midwifery school in El Paso. Concurrently with my classroom hours, I cared for 30-50 pregnant women per month. I returned to the Carolinas with the foundation of knowledge and experience to attend homebirths, and I became licensed in South Carolina. While my children were still at home, I kept my practice small, attending approximately ten births each year. As the boys grew, so did my practice, experience, skills and wisdom.

I have been licensed by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) since 1993. In 1998, I was nationally credentialed as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives. From 2009 until 2015, I owned, operated and practiced in a birth center, which further cultivated my experience. Taking care of ourselves through nutrition, herbs, homeopathy and a healthy lifestyle has been a long-standing passion. I’m also a certified health coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, exploring new countries, and attending art and music events.

CheriSix years after the traumatic birth of my first child, I decided to have my second baby at home with midwives. That sent me on a lifetime journey studying birth, breastfeeding, and natural health. I spent 2000-2010 as a Bradley instructor, LLL leader, doula, and apprentice midwife. I became a primary midwife in 2007 and a CPM in 2009.  I have practiced in multiple states and am currently a licensed midwife in SC. I’m the mother of 8 beautiful humans and the Marmie of 1 grandson. I live in Chester, SC with my loving, supportive husband, youngest children, and two loud, adorable dachshunds. When I’m not at births, you can find me homeschooling, pursuing my anthropology degree, or in my gardens. In my spare time, I love to hike, camp, make pottery, and do anything with fiber arts.
