Jennifer Bishop, CNM, is a certified nurse-midwife at Women's Healthcare Associates' Midwifery Birth Center in Portland, Oregon.
"As a midwife, I view pregnancy and birth as a normal (though still extraordinary!) life event and I see choosing a birth center as a powerful demonstration of trust in women’s bodies and birth. The Midwifery Birth Center is special because we are in a beautiful, intimate setting that facilitates focusing our time, attention and skills on supporting the innate capacity of women and babies. By minimizing the clicks, whirrs, beeps and buttons you may find in many hospitals, we are able to be wholly present with a woman on her physical, emotional and psychological journey from womanhood to motherhood."
Jennifer considers serving women and families an honor. Her goal is to partner with women to help them understand their health and choices so they feel comfortable and informed in making decisions for their wellness. Her interests include preventative health, contraception and natural, out-of-hospital childbirth. She cares for women at WHA's Midwifery Birth Center.
Outside of work, Jennifer enjoys spending time with family and friends, being outdoors (especially backpacking), travel, a good cup of tea and cooking from scratch.
