About Laure Sinnhuber-Giles, CM

Laure Sinnhuber-Giles, CM, is a board-certified midwife, a certified lactation counselor, and a certified childbirth educator with the team at Artemis OB/GYN in Union, New Jersey. 

Originally from France, Laure lived in Germany, Japan, and the UK prior to settling in New York City. The pivotal experience of giving birth to her daughters supported by an accomplished midwife inspired her to leave her career in advertising and to start her journey on the path of learning to support women and their families in their transition to parenthood. 

In 2007, she initiated the Healthy Birth Choices workshop series at the not-for-profit advocacy group Choices in Childbirth. The power of storytelling inspired over 1500 NYC families to think about their options and decide what was right for them. She supported families as a labor doula, lactation counselor, and childbirth educator. 

Laure also trained as a midwife’s assistant at Ina May Gaskin’s Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee. Subsequently, she shadowed midwives in the UK, in the Netherlands, in Amish Country of Pennsylvania, and in Montreal, Canada. She also participated in the Foundation for the Advancement of Haitian Midwives’ first conference in Haiti. Laure has also previously worked with the team at the Birth Center of New Jersey and as a Fellow Midwife at the Brooklyn Birthing Center.

Laure combines her love of languages, cultural diversity, and physiologic birth by providing her birth services in English, French, German, and Spanish – her Japanese is rusty! – and strives to support women in tapping into their inner strength during this wondrous life transition.

“My dearest wish is to pass on to women the gift my midwife gave me when I had my children: an attentive ear to listen to my questions, a vigilant eye to watch over my health, skilled hands to know my baby’s position, a calming presence to soothe me and an unshakable trust in my ability to give birth. She enabled me to find a strength in myself that I never knew I had.”
