Meet Our Tucson Team
Maya Z. Adams MSN, CNM
Maya Adams was eighteen when she first exposed to midwifery, listening to her cousin talk about the experience of having her baby at a freestanding birth center. After some starts and stops in college and life, she graduated with her nursing degree in 2002 from the U of A, moved to Colorado and worked as a labor and delivery RN until she became a midwife in 2010. Along the way she had her daughter at a birth center in Tucson, and her son at the hospital she worked at in Colorado. At the end of her midwifery program, she pursued a midwife position and was hired at the same birth center where her daughter was born, returning to Tucson in 2011. Her experience as a midwife has been attending both out-of-hospital birth center births and in-hospital births.
Maya values Babymoon Inn’s commitment to honoring women’s autonomy and birth choices, providing kind and gentle evidence based care, as well creating a community for families in their childbearing years. She is excited to join Babymoon Inn and serve women and families in Tucson.
In her free time, Maya enjoys spending time with her family and friends, camping, cycling, hanging out at home, and getting her hands messy with her clay projects.

A little about me:
I am a Tucson native and married my high school sweetheart. We have three beautiful children who were all born under the care of amazing midwives. I have always been fascinated by pregnancy and birth and love hearing birth stories. In 2004, a co-worker asked if I would be her doula. I am forever grateful for that experience because it ignited my passion and love for supporting families throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum. My passion for birth work is met equally with my passion for health and fitness and in 2016 I became a certified personal trainer.
Favorite subject to teach:
I love teaching about movement and comfort measures. Watching people connect and learn how to work with their body throughout pregnancy, labor and postpartum is so incredible. Introducing new tools and information that my students might not have thought about before taking my class brings me joy because they leave feeling empowered and equipped.
What people can expect in your classes:
Lots of evidence-based information, some laughs, and a comfortable, welcoming environment!
“Having had 2 hospital births and pregnancies under the care of an OBGYN and one birth center birth and pregnancy under the care of amazing midwives at Babymoon, there is no comparison.
At babymoon I had a say in my pregnancy care, labor, and birth with amazing evidence-based guidance from the midwives. I felt educated, respected, and empowered. The care was gentle and thorough. My questions were answered and not rushed. My concerns were addressed and not brushed aside. We made lifelong memories. Our birth was beautiful, peaceful and calm. We were safely monitored in ways that didn’t interrupt special moments. The birth center feels like home. Everyone feels like family.”
