Since opening in October of 2007, Dr. Lane has worked diligently to build relationships and educate about nurse-midwifery and homebirth within hospitals, ambulance units, within board of health departments, state programs, various clinics, to legislative leaders and university programs, as well as community groups. Our goal is to build an infrastructure of care that supports birth choices so seamless collaboration and transport can occur as appropriate, improving maternal and child outcomes. More recently we have began to speak to groups more about functional medicine and nurse-midwives as primary care practitioners.
If you are open to inviting Dr. Penny Lane CNM, IBCLC and Miss Kristina Michael CNM to discuss nurse-midwifery, functional medicine and/or homebirth options at your facility, clinic or nursing program, please connect with her here. Believe Midwifery Services, LLC hosts various practitioners and experts in their own respective fields to share their own talents, as well. If you would be interested in offering a short talk, a more formal presentation, or workshop, please call our office at 317-434-2229.
The first Monday of each month, Dr. Lane hosts the Functional Forum which is a networking event for functional minded healthcare practitioners with keynote speakers addressing a specific healthcare issue, varying from month to month. Meetings are consistently from 7pm to 10pm with the first hour open to networking and area speakers.
Past discussions include Gut Health, Oral Health, Epigenetics, Hormones & Wellness, NeuroPsych, Adrenal Health & Thyroid Disease.
Any practitioner who is curious about addressing the root cause of chronic disease is welcome to attend. We’ve had physicians, advance practice nurses, nutritionists, health coaches, midwives, pharmacists, veterinarians, dentists, hydrotherapists, massage therapists, chiropractors, herbalists, homeopaths and functional neutriceutical companies or laboratory companies join us. We’ve all learned a great deal from each other!
Register here – choose “find a local meetup” in Carmel on the first Monday of the month.

Pearls of Midwifery
This discussion is perfect for professional groups interested in better understanding evidence surrounding routine practices in maternity healthcare. It was created specifically for grand rounds within the hospital environment for obstetrical providers, but is also very appropriate for nursing programs, residency programs, and healthcare conferences. Already scheduled programs can be found on our event page, and you are welcome to join although we do ask that each attendant register.
