Kristin Kali

Kristin Kali, LM CPM is a talented and insightful guide for families in the process of welcoming a baby.  Her  unique approach to fertility care focuses on building an optimal state of fertile health utilizing natural methods alone or in tandem with fertility medicine.  As a midwife, she applies clinical knowledge within a context of client education, empowerment and support.

Since 1995, Kristin has assisted hundreds of families in the process of welcoming a child.  She holds space for new parents to fully realize the deeply transformational process and life-altering capacity of the conception, pregnancy and birth experience.   She honors the centrality of a parent’s own sense of inner knowing, vital to the journey of creating, birthing and nurturing a child.  She works in partnership with families who have decided to take an active role in the health of their pregnancies, their babies, and their relationships with one another, allowing empowerment to take place within an atmosphere of trust, respect and love.

Kristin is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives. She is a Licensed Midwife (LM) in the state of California. Kristin is a graduate of Seattle Midwifery School and a member of California Association of Midwives, Midwives Alliance of Hawaii, Midwives Association of North America, American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association.  Kristin joined MAIA in 2006 and is sole owner.
