Maura Winkler founded Fika Midwifery in Buffalo NY,  in 2017 and is now the Director of Midwifery at The Coit House, the only midwifery-led, CABC-accredited birth center in New York State. 


Originally from Buffalo, New York,  Maura Winkler moved to Chicago to pursue a medical degree. She quickly discovered that the medical model of care did not match her personal values and philosophies. 


Maura is a certified nurse midwife who believes strongly in the midwifery model of care–namely that pregnant and birthing people and their healthcare team are shared decision-makers. As a feminist midwife, she is a strong proponent that her clients are experts in their own bodies. 


In this episode Maura shares: 

  • Why she hired Lisa in 2017 during a pivotal moment in her business-building journey from doula to midwifery practice
  • How her path wasn’t what she thought it would be, but she kept connected to her clientele, instead of her naysayers
  • How she built her holistic healthcare practice and birthing center in a historic house in Buffalo NY
  • How her brand has grown over time to reflect her personal philosophies of what healthcare in America should be, and embody her clients’ personal values
