Nancy and Kim come together with an extensive, eclectic background. Over the years they have served as doulas, educators, independent midwives, CPM's, and mentors.
Nancy S. Farr
It was having a sweet homebirth back in 1982 that the dream of becoming a midwife was fully planted in her heart. She attained a degree in early childhood education and jokes she didn't know how early she wanted to be involved.
She is the mother of 3 adult children, and 'Nanny' to 7 grandchildren. Nancy's own experiences of pregnancy, birth, and mothering have shaped her philosophy and provided a vivid link to the sacred and profound effects of birth.
Believing in passing on the art of her craft, Nancy has mentored students from Seattle Midwifery School, Midwives College of Utah, The National Midwifery Institute, and N.A.R.M (North American Registry of Midwives).
Aside from her lifelong passion for midwifery, Nancy loves spending time with family, music, herbs, gardening, and soap-making. Most of all, she enjoys spending time outdoors, especially by the ocean.
She resides in Coventry, CT in a multigenerational household throughout the winter and spring. Nancy spends her summers and fall in Maine renovating an 1850's farmhouse.
Kim is the mother of 3 grown children, 2 daughters, and 1 son. Having her daughters in the hospital, and her son at home led her to become a midwife. The birth world has been a passion of hers for over 30 years and she has had the honor of working with hundreds of families.
Another passion of Kim's has always been sustainable fashion, which inspired her to open a resale clothing store. Bliss Boutique LLC was born in 2013.
Kim resides in Willimantic, CT. When she isn't attending births or working at her store, she enjoys acting in community theatre and holds a BFA in acting from the University of Connecticut. Other interests of Kim's include painting, yoga, long-distance running, and most of all spending time with her family.
