Who Is In The Vine

Andrea Roltgen, CPM, LM

Andrea Roltgen, CPM, LM has lived with her husband and children in North Idaho for over 20 years.  She began her journey helping women throughout their childbearing season over 15 years ago, with a deep study and interest of the female body and hormones, which coincided with the nudging of the Lord to become a Certified Herbalist.  Andrea consulted with hundreds of families locally, and across the nation to help them understand and take charge of their wellness, fertility, family health and even perimenopause.  As a mama of 13, Andrea was committed to ensuring that the mamas she supported, as well as herself, came out healthier after each pregnancy. This commitment then gave birth to obtaining an ICEA Childbirth Education Certification,  Birth Doula Certification, obtaining extensive Midwife Assisting experience and eventually earning the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and Licensed Midwife (LM) titles.

The commitment to see women thrive in their childbearing season is the cornerstone of In The Vine Midwifery.  Andrea firmly believes that women can be supported physically, emotionally and spiritually during this important season.  Low volume care with a focus on supporting the whole woman is foundational to Andrea, while utilizing herbal modalities and remaining physiologically respectful in her care is the goal.

In her free time, Andrea loves homeschooling her children that are not yet grown-ups, spending time with her adult children and grandchildren, cooking, baking, gardening, swimming, soaking up the sun; and cultivating a deeper understanding and respect for the female body, pregnancy and birth.
