Jennifer Bishop, CNM, is a certified nurse-midwife with Women's Healthcare Associates in Portland, Oregon.
From the Provider
“Healthcare can be overwhelming and confusing. I strive to be an advocate for folks so they have a guide in navigating the system with confidence. Helping people understand their bodies and options then deciding on the path forward that feels most aligned with their identity is one of the things I appreciate most about the practice of nurse-midwifery. From choosing a method of contraception to helping someone come to terms with a difficult diagnosis—my goal is that each individual feels listened to, well-informed and in control of decision making.”
