Welcome to HazelTree Midwifery


Every woman has a right to a safe and satisfying birth experience of her choice. It is her widwife’s job to help her reach that goal.

“Ask me for strength and I will not only lend you my hand, but also my heart.”

Welcome to HazelTree Midwifery, founded by Kim Palmer, LM, CPM.

As a Certified Professional Midwife carrying licensure in Idaho, I offer some of the highest quality care available in N. Idaho for pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. I specialize in providing personalized care for women and their families who understand and want the benefits of a natural birth. I attend homebirths, waterbirths, birth center births and VBAC’s. I am also the first midwife in the Coeur d’Alene area to hold professional birth privileges at Dayspring Birth Center in Hayden ID. This allows me to offer my clients both home birth and birth center birth as an option. I have recently opened my personal home as an option for births as well. I serve women with Idaho State Medicaid as well as cash pay clients. I do not bill private insurance companies however, I do work closely with an accomplished insurance biller. For those who are uncertain about what midwifery is or what is involved with an out-of-hospital birth, I encourage you to contact me and schedule a free consultation. I’ll answer any questions you and/or your partner may have and help you to determine if you are a good candidate for out of hospital birth.
