Local Care Midwifery, PLLC is a private midwifery practice located in the heart of NY's Capital District. LCM, PLLC was founded in 2009 by K.Michelle Doyle, CNM, NYS LM. We specialize in Planned Home Birth Services as well as personalized Well Woman Care. Since 2015, Michelle has had privileges at Bellevue Women's Hospital in Niskayuna, NY.  This relationship with Bellevue, which has a Level II NICU, means we can offer planned hospital birth for select clients, and continued direct midwifery care should transfer from planned home birth be needed.

We believe that women are strong, that birth is innately safe, and that it is best to be prepared. These beliefs and decades of experience are the foundation of Local Care Midwifery's Homebirth Service.
