About Cocoon Wellness Center


CNM, Owner and Director of Cocoon Wellness Center

I founded Cocoon for a simple reason: I wanted there to be a safe, nurturing, light-hearted place to both give and receive care. That vision led to the creation of Cocoon.  

Since 1997 I have attended more than 1,500 births in hospitals, community birth centers, and homes.

I practice an integrative, holistic style of functional healthcare. I suggest interventions carefully, with consideration to the entire situation.

I bring both intellect and intuition to the work I do, combining the best scientific evidence with a powerful internal sense of what is happening in the moment with a client, family and baby.

Here at Cocoon, our most basic value is respect. Whoever you are, however you see yourself, whatever your background is, that is respected as having its own sovereignty.

Cocoon is the culmination of my life’s work as a midwife. At the same time, Cocoon isn’t my birth center. It belongs to the community. It belongs to you.


Amber Abbey, RN

My name is Amber. I have been an OB nurse since 2003, working in the hospital setting in various roles, caring for moms, parents, and babies both term and preterm. I place high value on assisting with early breastfeeding, as I feel this sets the framework for lifelong nutrition, as well as bonding.  

Since becoming a nurse I have created a beautiful family, including my loving boyfriend Aaron and three boys Carter (16), Waylon (11), and Nicholas (3). In my free time I have taken on homesteading, with the goal of self-sufficiency. I love to garden! My love of gardening and OB were both sparked years ago by a coworker who planted the seeds in my heart to assist with bringing all sorts of new life into the world.
