Erica Delmore, DEM, CLC
Training & Apprenticeship
Hi there, my name is Erica Delmore. Before I get into why and how I became a midwife, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I was born in Port Chester, New York. I lived in Riverdale, NY (part of the Bronx) until I was 8, and my family moved to Westchester County, the village of Hartsdale. I graduated from The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry NY, and then went on to attend Bard College, where I received a degree in English Literature.
I moved to Las Vegas in the late summer of 2002 and worked in the construction industry. In 2009, I decided to become a Certified Labor Doula through DONA (Doulas Of North America), which then put me on the path to becoming a midwife
I completed my Midwifery Apprenticeship in February of 2015 after three years of intensive hands on training. During that time I not only learned the art of midwifery itself, but equally as important, I learned about the importance of midwifery care being made available to all women.
Since I have been practicing on my own I have been honored to have assisted dozens of families here in the valley welcome their babies at home, into a loving and safe environment.
I became a midwife because: I believe that women deserve to know what their options are. I want women to know that they can take back their autonomy and power, trust their bodies, and birth in a way that feels natural and best for them.
