Provider Bio

Ariel Brantley-Dalglish, CNM, is a certified nurse-midwife at Women's Healthcare Associates in Portland, Oregon.

From the Provider

“As women, we can be hard on ourselves—and social media makes it all too easy to compare our own relationships, bodies, pregnancies or motherhood against other women. We have so much information at our finger tips these days, it can be hard to figure out what on the internet is hype, what is good research and what actually applies to you as an individual. Add to this the unsolicited advice and sometimes judgement from friends, family or strangers about what form of birth control is best, how much or what you should be eating in pregnancy, or the best way to birth or feed a baby. My aim is to create safe, non- judgmental spaces in which to equip each woman I see with the tools and resources she needs to make informed decisions about her own health. I enjoy partnering with women to bust some of the myths, judgements and societal pressures that can inhibit them from identifying and embracing their individual truth and their fullest, healthiest self.”

About the Provider

Ariel’s understanding of the strength and courage of women and the nature of physiologic birth began early when she witnessed her first home birth at age nine. Her mother, an inner city teacher, also instilled strong values of service and social justice, which have become the foundation of Ariel’s life and work partnering with women as they discover the depth of their own strength. Ariel studied nutrition and herbal medicine before becoming a midwife and enjoys incorporating aspects of these preventative health modalities into the care she provides her patients, especially women who are struggling with anxiety and depression. She has a special interest in assisting adolescents to navigate their sexual and reproductive health choices and enjoys collaborating with women of all ages to achieve their goals of healthier and happier lives. She is also very committed to creating a safe, non-judgmental place for pregnant women with substance abuse histories to receive care.

 Ariel maintains a mindfulness meditation practice and enjoys cooking, yoga and all types of dance. She spends as much time in Oregon's beautiful wilderness as possible.
