It has been a long and bureaucratically intense process but Jenni is now a fully licensed Texas midwife! Though Jenni has been attending births as an assistant and helping with MotherBloom office work for several years, she has not been able to work as a primary midwife until now. Jenni worked for several years as a Registered Midwife in Ontario, Canada, helping families at home births, as well as having hospital privileges. When she moved to Austin, in 2011, she started the process of becoming licensed in Texas but we knew it would be a long road since there is no reciprocity between Canadian and American midwifery.
We are very happy to be able to share client care responsibilities equally now that Haven, our 9 month old little one, is getting more active and vocal. Jenni and I plan to be able to provide even more personalized care and different types of services as we grow our practice together.
