Renee Hokom,

Certified Nurse Midwife,

Advanced Practice Nurse Prescriber


Hi! I’m Renee Hokom, a Certified Nurse Midwife and Advanced Practice Nurse Prescriber. I am thrilled to be joining the team of midwives at Authentic Birth Center.


My passion for women’s health and birth work began after college, when I was working on farms in Europe. During this time, I was surrounded by women who believed in the innate strength of their bodies and practiced a natural, holistic approach to health. These women shared their birth stories with me, and I became fascinated by the transformative power of pregnancy and birth. I began volunteering as a doula in 2010 at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, WA. In 2012 I went on to get my Masters of Nursing degree from Seattle University. I passed my midwifery boards in 2014 and moved to Milwaukee soon afterwards to help start a prenatal program at a Federally Qualified Health Center in an underserved part of the city. This work has been both challenging and rewarding for the past 3 years. However, I was craving a transition from hospital-based practice to out-of-hospital midwifery. In November 2017 I connected with LaNette, Ali, and Katy and started a 6-month apprenticeship, which led to an opportunity to stay on and join the team here at Authentic Birth Center!


As a midwife, my goal is to support women in their healthcare journey, to develop genuine patient-provider relationships, and to honor the individual needs of each client. I look forward to working with you throughout your pregnancy, during the postpartum period, and for any other women’s health needs.




"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
