Alyson Lippman,

Certified Nurse Midwife
Advanced Practice Nurse Prescriber



I’m Alyson Lippman, CNM, APNP (Certified Nurse Midwife and Advanced Practice Nurse Prescriber) and I am thrilled to join the team at Authentic Birth Center! Some say that Midwifery is a calling and, for me, that is quite accurate. My road to Midwifery started when I was  an elementary school teacher.  I was having dinner with my family one night when I announced, “If I don’t catch babies, I think I will look back on my life and regret it.” I spent 3 years taking prerequisite science courses before earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and beginning my Women’s Health career as a Labor & Delivery nurse at a large urban hospital in Chicago.

While working there and growing my own family, I slowly earned my Master’s Degree in Nursing and became a Certified Nurse Midwife. Before coming to Authentic, I practiced Midwifery in the Chicago suburbs and at a health center for underserved and homeless populations in Milwaukee. I also managed the childbirth education department and high-risk OB clinic at Columbia St. Mary’s hospital. Additionally, I teach Nursing Care of Women & Infants to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as nursing leadership to Master’s students at UWM. I balance it all by teaching yoga!

In 2014, I was living in Chicago and heard about this birth center in Milwaukee, where my husband was working at the time. I came to an open house with the curiosity of a Midwife and, also pregnant myself, decided to transfer my care here. My 3rd child was baby number 22, born in The Nest, and it was an incredible experience. I am absolutely honored to be able to bring this experience to other families.

My philosophy of care is family-centered. I seek to listen, provide thoughtful assessment and care, share important information, and advocate for families and babies. I strive to empower and guide them to make choices for their care. I look forward to sharing in your pregnancy and birth experience!



"It was truly the most wonderful experience! The setting is gorgeous and the midwives are angels!" ~~Courtney


"My friend told me it (birth at Authentic) was " a holy experience", she was not wrong! This was my fifth baby, all others had been hospital births. My husband and I both wished we could go back in time and have them all at Authentic." ~~Jen

"It was an absolute privilege to birth there. But, if you asked one of the midwives,they would tell you that it's their privilege to serve us and that is what makes Authentic truly remarkable. Outstanding love and care for every family."

~~ Brittney
