About the midwife


Carrie Cobb ADN, RN, LM

I believe God has a plan for each of our lives. Some of us know from the beginning what we are called to do whereas others travel down different paths before they identify their true calling.  It wasn’t until after the difficult hospital birth of my first daughter that I realized that there has to be a better way to bring a new life into the world. After many months of research and seeking opportunities I was privileged to attend my first home delivery. From that moment on I knew that God had called me to be a midwife.  The relationship that is created between a midwife and the family is like no other. The love, trust and respect that develop during this journey remains forever ingrained in my heart. I started attending births as a doula in both the home and hospital settings in 1997. I became a childbirth educator with The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth in 2003. In August 2006, I became an Arkansas Licensed Midwife and founded Gentle Arrival Midwifery. I soon went on to finish my nursing degree at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I currently reside in Central Arkansas where I home school my three beautiful daughters.
