About the Midwife
Mercy Eizenga LM, CPM is the head midwife and owner of Comforts of Home Midwifery. Mercy was first exposed to homebirth when she witnessed the birth of her little brother at the age of 7. Her interest in natural childbirth grew with the birth of her first child and then attending Bradley Natural Childbirth classes with a friend a year and a half later. Attending her first birth as a doula verified that she was called to be a midwife. Mercy attended the Association of Texas Midwives Training Program and completed an apprenticeship with what is now the Corpus Christi Birth Center. She holds a Texas state license, is listed with the state of Oklahoma, and holds her Certified Professional Midwife with the North American Registry of Midwives.

Junior Student Midwife
As mother to 3 wonderful children, ages 19, 15 and 12, Samantha has learned the true value of becoming a mother. Her children are her whole world and she wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, it is because of them and her birth experiences that she began to travel the path to becoming a midwife. While working as an assistant for an OB/GYN, she fell in love with the whole birth process. Samantha started reading everything she could related to pregnancy and birth. In 2013, she attended WomanCraft Midwifery Online. She also began working as a placenta encapsulator and in 2015, she became a Doula. Samantha strives to continually expand her knowledge base through courses on topics such as Aromatherapy, Breastfeeding, Belly Binding, Kinesiotaping and others. Her most recent training is in the area of Acupressure Comfort Measures. Samantha is in love with birth and ever amazed at the brilliance of the woman’s body and its ability to produce life.
