Our Trainers

Diane Marshall B.A., LPN, LM, CLC, Director of CHAM

CHAM is an answer to a 20 year vision and dream for Diane.  Her background starts with becoming a nurse (LPN).  With her own births and assisting with other births, she knew there was something better.  In striving to understand and her persistant searching for “the better”, she ended up teaching childbirth classes, leading LaLeche League (helping mothers with nursing), and becoming a midwife.  She homeschooled her girls so she limited her practice to part-time. This went on for over 30 years.

During that time for the sake of bringing strong health one her daughters that was born with Spina Bifida, she pursued and attained her degree in Health and Wellness from Regis University. This degree is strong in nutrition and natural health.  She learned many health principles during that time that she carried over to midwifery.  Taking mothers out of high risk into low risk status was something that developed as she applied these health principles to mother’s wanting to become pregnant, and mother’s needing extra help in pregnancy.  It is her joy to help mothers to see how very special they are and empower them to that role of motherhood.

CHAM came about in 2012 in response to several women asking help to become a midwife and much encouragement and help from Kevin Swanson.  Diane’s heart is to bring forward and teach what she has learned through the years to younger women, building the school on Biblical principles.

Chelsey Nabeta RN, BSN

Chelsey was first introduced to the childbirth field as a doula and CBE in 2006. Her love for birth grew through traditional midwifery school, apprenticeship and lay practice in both birth center and home settings before she became a nurse in 2014. Now married with 5 children (all born naturally and four born at home), she and her husband joyfully support the vision and mission of CHAM! Chelsey teaches university-level medical research and physical assessment and loves hosting students quarterly on the family’s small hobby ranch.

Stephanie Sibert, CPM, BSM, RM

Stephanie is a practicing midwife on the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies. She began training with a local midwife in 2011 and began practicing in 2017 before connecting with CHAM in 2017 and again just this past year! Working in midwifery education is one of Stephanie’s highest joys, as is supporting students to become excellent midwives while creating the sustainability they need to step into their calling as a Christ-follower, woman, and birthworker.
