My husband and I are hoping to expand our little family soon and we know that we want to go with Becka again for our pregnancy and delivery. She really knows what she’s doing, she’s bubbly and easy to feel comfortable around. She’s good at easing your fears and and carries a peace that I really needed during labour. I would definitely recommend her.Marie Burtness
I really enjoyed having Becka as my midwife. Her prenatals were informative, personable, and she offered great advice on nutrition among other things. She did a great job of talking us through our concerns and letting us know what to expect. She was easy to get a hold of and would text back quickly, even if it was late at night.Marie Burtness
My labor lasted THREE DAYS right at the peak of the holiday season and Becka was by our side every step of the way. She was responsive day or night, came over in a moments notice (even it was just to calm my nerves), and was strong when I needed her most. If I have any more children, she’ll be the first person I call.Danielle Cearbaugh
In Redding, it’s hard to find a healthy combination of professionalism and genuine love for what they do. Becka is one of those rare people. It is evident that she is passionate about what she does, and that passion shows from the initial visit all the way through our last time meeting with her. When choosing a midwife, Becka was by far the best choice my wife and I could have made.Josh Cearbaugh
Home Birth Delivery
As direct entry midwives we are specifically trained to attend out of hospital births. When care is given in your own home you are in your comfort zone where the labor and birth is allowed to unfold at its own pace, and the mother is the center of focus and attention.

Becka English Frankie
I am a California Licensed Midwife, and a Certified Professional Midwife and have attended over 400 births, in homes, births centers and hospitals.
Having lived in Redding for the past 6 years, I have been honored to start a home birth practice here, serving families from all walks of life. I see birth as a normal process and wants to give families a safe, healthy, and fulfilling birth experience.
For as long as I can remember, my heart has been to serve families through all stages of life. My mother has a picture of me pretending to breastfeed my baby doll as a three year old, so we knew at a young age that women and children were of interest to my heart.
In the last few years Midwifery has fallen into my lap and doors have opened to begin attending births wearing a variety of hats. Falling more in love with the whole journey I have found myself as a midwife student through National College of Midwifery, doula, childbirth educator, and placenta encapsulation specialist.
I have lived in Redding for two years and will be planning on starting my practice here in town when licensed.
