Since beginning her midwife practice in 1997, Carol Denny has provided care & education to women and their families. She has attended about 1100 births. She attended her first birth as a student in 1982, 40 years ago. Her observations caused her to become passionate about kind and respectful care to women during this vulnerable time. She became a doula (labor assistant) in 1989. Having her own homebirths after having hospital births, she became convinced of the benefits of homebirth for both mother and baby.
She is also passionate about caring for women and babies around the world. In 2004 she founded the non-profit corporation Global Health Training. GHT focuses on teaching healthcare with the purpose of improving maternal and neonatal outcomes, especially in vulnerable communities. She has traveled to Mexico, Honduras, Haiti, Uganda and India teaching healthcare.
Carol has been married for 39 years. She has 8 children and 21 grandchildren.
