About the Midwife

Anissa Sartini (they/them or she/her) is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and a Licensed Midwife (LM) in the State of Texas. My extensive training began in 2008 and completed in 2017. I have been attending births since 2009! My greatest love is serving the diverse families of our vibrant Metroplex! I warmly welcome all races, faiths, ethnicities, classes, abilities, genders, and sexualities. Hablo español básico sobre los temas del embarazo, el parto y el posparto. In my practice we focus on training new midwives as well, particularly POC and queer students, to increase access to safe and compassionate care.

I have attended around 300 births including home, birth center, hospital, VBAC, twins, breech, induced, medicated, and cesarean deliveries. I look forward to many more!

I live in Irving with my lovely partner, darling new baby, two sweet and feisty cats, and five chickens. Our beautiful baby was born at home in the bath tub, and came to us via in vitro fertilization. In my free time I love to spend time with my friends and family, create art, and contribute to activist causes.

I apprenticed with various home and birth center midwives in Texas and Massachusetts, and completed a specialized apprenticeship in women’s herbal studies. In 2010 I opened a doula/monitrice practice, which I continue on a case by case basis for high risk clients. In 2012 I completed a BA at Smith College, where I studied biology, herbalism, and other topics relevant to the practice of midwifery.

I look forward to helping you achieve your birthing dreams!
