My training has been an apprenticeship model of training. The apprenticeship model consists of working with a practicing midwife, by assisting her in all aspects of her practice. I also completed a MEAC(midwifery education
accreditation council) accredited school, the National Midwifery Institute (NMI). Through NMI I completed the necessary academic study which compliments the practical training of midwifery. I also trained at a high volume birth center, Casa De Nacimiento in
El Paso,Texas for a total of 10 weeks. While at Casa De Nacimiento, duties included prenatal and post partum care for the clients as well as catching babies. The volume of birth at Casa De Nacimiento is 30-70 births a month. I apprenticed with Alison
Osborn LM CPM from 2004-2010. She is a midwife with thirty years of experience and I have learned so much from her. I have attended 280+ births thus far. I am licensed by the state of California Medical Board and I have a national certification from
NARM, North Atlantic Registery of Midwives.
