About The Instructor

CorinaCorina Hossle | Founder, Clinical Director & Midwife

Corina ordered her first “How to Become a Midwife” book in 1992, but raising three children, homeschooling, and running several businesses got in the way of her dream.  At 42, with her kids leaving home and her life shifting, she decided to make the leap!

Corina doula’d her way through midwifery school, serving high risk mothers who were provided doulas for support.  She attended National Midwifery Institute, which is accredited by the Midwifery Education Accreditation Counsel.  She passed her North American Registry of Midwives test in 2012, and became a Certified Professional Midwife.

Since beginning her journey, she has worked with 13 different midwives at over 300 birth center or home births.   She spent months assisting Hispanic women on the border of Mexico who spoke no English, has witnessed Amish women give birth by lamplight, has attended doctor’s wives who chose home birth and placenta encapsulation, and has sat with hippy mamas singing to their babies under full moons.  Corina even spent 18 months as a staff midwife at the only freestanding birth center in the Caribbean, working with island families in Trinidad and Tobago.

After teaching at an accredited midwifery school in Florida for several months, Corina decided that Richmond VA was the place to open her birth center, and she came to RVA on a mission!  Embrace Midwifery Care & Birth Center (and Embrace Wellness Collective!) is her dream come true.

​ “The truth is, all women birth in similar ways and they all know how to do it. It’s Intuitive.  My vision is to create space and support so that women can access that intuition and birth with joy.”
