Stacey Vigilante


My journey to become a midwife began after the births of my own children and the contrast I experienced between Obstetric and Midwifery care. I became a doula and childbirth educator and served women in this capacity for many years. As a doula and educator I repeatedly saw the holes and gaps in care provided to women and I felt a genuine need to do more. After years  of making excuses and ignoring this call I attended the beautiful home birth of my grandson and that was it. I believe that all women deserve a well supported birth in the setting they CHOOSE and I was determined to make a difference.
I went back to school and graduated from Mercy in Action College of Midwifery with a bachelors of science in midwifery, and a certification in practical midwifery or (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives and am now a Licensed Midwife in the State of Alaska proudly serving women in Sitka. I have been married for 30 years to my amazing husband Ralph and we spend our time in the outdoors hiking, boating, hunting and fishing every chance we get. We have 3 awesome adult kids and 11 grandchildren. The last two I had the privilege of being the midwife. I have had the honor of serving women in Montana, Idaho and Alaska.

Birth Assistant

I am a wife and homeschool mom to three. My husband and I have made Sitka our home since 2005, where we enjoy hiking, camping, and beach combing. When I was pregnant, I always imagined that I would give birth in a home environment with the help of a midwife, but sadly that option was never available to me. Keeping in line with my desire for natural childbirths, I breast fed all three of my children for the first year of each of their lives. I believe motherhood is sacred and that every woman should have the choice to have a natural childbirth experience. It is my hope to serve the women of this community as they step into motherhood, whether it be for the first time or the tenth.
