Esther Healey embraces life in all its fullness, knowing that the universe is more than just molecules interacting with each other. Rooted in the worlds of both modern science and ancient traditions, she is devoted to the art and craft of midwifery and finds nothing is more exciting than to discover new pockets of wisdom that she can integrate and pass on to others.

Esther strives to be present in every moment and honors her relationships through mindful listening and dialogue. This allows for exploration of deeper definitions of love, health, honesty, motherhood, and what it really means to be human. This allows her to act swiftly and competently when circumstances arise.

Esther is content in her life, and learning how to find joy in every moment. Through her family, community, and personal life practice, she consistently deepens her roots and finds peace in knowing that she is profoundly supported.

Born and raised in Berkeley, Esther now lives in Oakland with her comedic partner in crime, Joshua. She looks forward to someday adding a few new little peanuts to the family.
