All complications were resolved well. I have not encountered infant or maternal mortality as a health care provider.

My History:
I began to study midwifery in the spring of 1999 and began assisting with births in October of ’99. I apprenticed with a Brenham midwife for 18 months, and then in the summer of 2002 I went to El Paso, TX to Casa De Nacimiento birth center for a three-month internship. There I completed the clinical requirements for a Texas Midwife License, learning from five different Texas licensed midwives. I completed my academic requirements in the fall of 2003 by passing the North American Registry of Midwives exam. I became a Licensed Midwife in November of 2003 and began my practice in the fall of 2005.
