Damaris Pittman – Licensed Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife

My name is Damaris Pittman and I’m a Certified Professional Midwife licensed to practice in South Carolina. I live near the NC/SC border and also offer doula services in the greater Charlotte area. With 25 years of homebirth experience under my belt I am still awed at how unique each birth is!

Today’s midwifery is a blend of current evidence-based practice and the timeless, personalized art of woman-to-woman care.

Midwife means “with woman” so my role is not to direct you, but to walk beside you on your journey. Being actively involved in all the decisions and responsibilities that affect you and your baby is the best way to assure a safe, healthy and happy birth.
