Lauren Delgado, CNM, ARNP

Lauren is a board certified nurse midwife (CNM) who has been working with women and families since 2015. She was called to midwifery years ago through her love of mission work in countries around the world. She has had the privilege of attending hundreds of births, both as a labor & delivery nurse and as a midwife.

Lauren is a strong supporter of holistic care and believes that optimal health is supported by many practices such as a balanced diet, chiropractic care, acupuncture, exercise, and more. Lauren is currently under the study of Dr. Aviva Romm where she is enrolled in the Herbal Medicine for Women course. She plans to intertwine this education into her midwifery work caring for women in all stages of life. ​

Outside of her midwifery work, Lauren spends the majority of her time with her family. They love to travel, cook, and spend time outdoors. Her husband (Jose) is her biggest supporter. Lauren & Jose have two beautiful little born in the hospital and one born at home! She has an entirely new perspective on pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum time since becoming a mother herself

Kayla loved growing up in rural, central Iowa. During high school, she spent time in Sierra Leone, West Africa where her parents started a ministry. While there, she was introduced to the devastating reality of gaps in maternal and infant healthcare.  Even at a young age, she knew that she wanted to have a part in improving health outcomes for women.  Kayla became a registered nurse (RN) and then a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).  In 2012, She returned to Sierra Leone and served as a midwife for six years. She has had the privilege to serve thousands of women and attend hundreds of births over the course of her career. 


In 2018, she settled back in central Iowa and worked alongside home birth midwives while completing her education as a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM).  


She's excited to be back in Iowa and use her love of midwifery and experience in women's care to serve the women and families in her home State! 


Outside of being a midwife, Kayla spends most of her time with her family.  She has four beautiful children. She loves to cook, garden, spend time outdoors and travel.

Sarah Grantham, RN

Sarah’s love of birth goes back to her days of nursing school where she spent her preceptorship on a Labor and Delivery floor at a small hospital. Out of school, Sarah explored other areas of nursing, but after her own pregnancy and the birth of her first son, she felt on fire with a passion for educating, empowering, and supporting women through pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. 


Sarah has been a registered nurse since 2009 and she has had the joy of working in the birthing community since 2018 including at Broadlawns Family Birthing Center, as a birth assistant for community midwives, and through nutrition support within her own business at Whole Momma Nutrition. 


Sarah’s passion for educating, empowering, and supporting mothers stems from her own life experiences. She has had the opportunity to further her education to include a Bachelors in Nursing, Nutrition Therapy Master, Certified Lactation Specialist, Professional Doula, and a Restorative Wellness Practitioner.  She has had the honor of supporting many women through the miracle of birth.  


During her free time, Sarah homeschools her four boys (Dreyer 5, Danger 3, Dekker 2, and Dox 6 mo) and her niece (Hayden 7), loves to garden, enjoys cooking with her kids, and loves working on the homestead with her Husband Darson.
