Treasure Valley Midwives has grown by leaps and bounds, starting out as a small home birth operation in 1997, to a full clinic and birth center that offers maternity and comprehensive wellness care, lactation services, and fertility services. Our staff of three Certified Nurse Midwives, three Licensed Midwives and a wonderful International Board Certified Lactation Consultant are here to provide quality, individualized care for families in the greater Treasure Valley.

Laurie worked at Dayspring Midwifery for nearly three years as a doula, birth assistant, and eventually as a student midwife. In the summer of 2013 Laurie and her family moved to Boise. She was fortunate enough to join the Treasure Valley Midwives team and finished her clinical and didactic requirements to become a Licensed Midwife in 2017.

Sophie Ness, CNM

Sophie grew up hearing birth stories, as her mother was a nurse at a birth center. However, she was not originally called to birth work. Sophie attended nursing school with the goal to first become a missionary. After graduating from Northwest Nazarene University in 2004, Sophie worked as a nurse in several different areas of Idaho, while using her vacation time for short-term mission trips to Ethiopia. In 2009, she moved to a small town in rural Ethiopia where she worked as a medical missionary for six years. Sophie fell in love with pregnancy and childbirth during her time in Africa. When she moved back to the US, she completed her education at Frontier Nursing University in 2017 to become a Certified Nurse Midwife, and finished her clinical training with Treasure Valley Midwives.

Sophie loves to travel whenever she can and enjoys cooking, reading, and starting (but generally not finishing) whatever craft has most recently captured her interest.

She lived and worked in the New Jersey / New York area for another year before relocating to Boise to join the TVM team. She is thrilled to be in Boise and looks forward to exploring the area more!
