Lori Murafka Orme
My introduction to midwifery was 20 years ago when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter. My midwife was kind and compassionate, listened to my concerns, and genuinely cared for me and my baby. Although I continued with midwifery care for my next two pregnancies, I quickly became disheartened with the medical model and hospital care. For my fourth pregnancy, I wanted a homebirth with a CPM. My choices were limited since I was having twins, but I did find a midwife that believed in my body as much as I did. This entire experience changed me and started me on my path to becoming a CPM.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral and Social Science with a minor in Sociology. During my midwifery training I attended homebirths, worked in a high-volume birth center in Texas, and a hospital in Belize. In 2007, I earned the CPM credential and became licensed under the Virginia Board of Medicine. To date, I have attended 500+ births. Outside of helping to maintaining our busy midwifery practice, I have an amazingly supportive husband and 8 children, 5 of which have been born at home with CPMs. We have homeschooled since our oldest was 5 . In 2016, our practice had the honor of attending my grandson’s birth at home. In my copious amounts of spare time, I enjoy going to the gym, hanging with my kids, and vacations to anywhere tropical.
