Libby Colsen, CPM
I’m Libby, a queer, Certified Professional Midwife offering preconception counseling remotely, home insemination in the southeast, and postpartum services in Knoxville, TN. I believe that midwifery connects the profound wisdom in our bodies with the collective health and strength of our communities. In order to address the serious disparities in reproductive care affecting People of Color and queer and trans folks, we need broad structural change. Midwifery is a vital component of that transformation. Therefore it’s my intention to provide care that is culturally relevant, gender expansive and deeply connected.
I studied at Maternidad La Luz, a MEAC accredited midwifery school in El Paso, TX. In 2018 I became licensed by the North American Registry of Midwives and the state of Tennessee. For two years I worked as a staff midwife in a busy homebirth practice here in Knoxville. With the creation of Lumen Midwifery I’m delighted to put my passion for health equity into fertility and conception work. Originally from Boston, I now live in South Knoxville with my partner Sean and our twins, Ocean and Sequoia.
