Licensed Midwives Serving Bakersfield, Ca

There are three certified, licensed midwives that provide the Midwifery Model of Care to women in Bakersfield, California and the surrounding areas such as Taft, Buttonwillow, Shafter, Wasco, Tehachapi, Arvin, Delano, Lake Isabella, etc. They are licensed by the Medical Board of California.

They serve the whole Kern County area. These midwives offer a wide array of services to fit the needs of low-risk pregnant people who choose to have a home birth or a birth center birth. They provide evidence-based, family-oriented, individualized care to their clients. As each pregnancy and birth is unique, each midwife is unique in her practice.

It is beneficial for you to interview each of them. You will get an idea of each midwife’s model of care, and you get to meet them in person.

Not sure if you can have a home birth? Ask the midwife. She is knowledgeable in the laws, and she will make sure to guide you properly.

Someday, soon, I’ll be able to add my name to this list as the first, and only, Spanish
speaking midwife for our whole county!
