Hello World!


Hello Richmond!


We are Linsey Kornya CPM, LM, Adrianna Ross CPM, LM and Marinda Shindler. We are excited to announce we are opening up a new birth center in Richmond! We have formed a group practice, River City Midwifery, that provides home birth and birth center care for families in central and eastern Virginia. Along with Erin Parish-Gibson, CNM we will be providing inclusive and holistic well care, including pap smears and STI screening. We offer holistic and medical birth control options along with fertility and assisted reproductive consults and limited services. We are excited, Richmond!

Linsey, Adrianna and Marinda have all experienced working in busy birth centers, smaller birth centers and home birth practices. We are bringing together the aspects of each that we love most. Our practice is grounded in the type of collaborative preventative care we love in home birth practices: small volume, low-risk and evidence-informed. We value taking the time to listen and understand. We also love the access a birth center can afford to more advanced skills and higher level care providers while providing midwives with a little more life-work balance. We look forward to being rested and fresh at your births!

Located in beautiful lakeside, our birth center is across from the farmer's market on Lakeside Avenue. We are a short walk from Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and Bryan Park and minutes off of major regional highways. We are currently carefully and minimally renovating the historic home that will be our birth center. Phase 1, which includes a birth suite with a private entrance and kitchen, will be complete December 1st. We are opening our clinic and community space September 1st!

Please read more about us and our practice on our website. Let us know if you have any questions. Our community resource page is a work in progress, and we know we missed some of the amazing people out there doing amazing work around childbirth, pregnancy and maternal health. Please let us know if you would like to be included!

We want to thank the birth and medical community of Richmond for the support and encouragement we have received. We want this to be your birth center, so if you have any ideas or thoughts about how we can better serve you, or ways we can support you or an awesome project you know about, please let us know! We plan to post frequent updates, so if you haven't already, like our Facebook page an follow us on Instagram @rivercitymidwifery!
