A Celebration of Birth and Life

Welcome to "A Celebration of Birth and Life!"

A Celebration of Birth & Life
We are a Homebirth Midwifery Practice in San Diego, California. "www.sandiegohomebirth.com" DBA “A Celebration of Birth and Life” is owned by Celesta Rannisi C.M., L.M., L.C.S., CT. We are so blessed to have one of the very first California licensed midwives here in San Diego. As one of our community’s most seasoned midwives, Celesta brings a wealth of knowledge to the women she serves. See about us for details. See "About Us" for details.

Celesta has been providing midwifery services and has attended women with home births and newborns since 1987. She has attended countless home births and helped hundreds of women using natural and healthy techniques geared to each woman’s individual needs. She has worked tirelessly to promote the midwifery model of care in her state and around the world. She has had her own “Voice America” radio talk show sponsored by California Association of Midwives called “Celesta Rannisi’s Timely Topics in Childbirth” that aired for a year and can be heard here in her radio show archives. 

Her approach is down to earth and holistically based She believes that birth is not an illness that breastfeeding is the best food for protecting the health of children and protecting the hormonal balance of new mamas, and that pre-menopausal/menopausal women are not meant to be dependent on hormones.
Please contact us to set up a time to visit her unique home office. Celesta’s supportive, nourishing and naturally homey environment provides an inviting space for learning holistic living and organic gardening. Children are always welcome and enjoy playing at her mini farm. 

Let “A Celebration of Birth and Life” be your go to site for up to date resources, information and support. We look forward to hearing from you!
