Jessica Breiter-Bonner, LM, CPM, RN, Midwife and Registered Nurse
Jessica has participated in more than 100 home births, and over 200 hospital births; she is well acquainted with the protocols of both. However, Jessica's current practice commits exclusively to home births. Jessica believes that in order to be the best midwife for her clients, she must be as educated and knowledgeable as possible. Therefore, Jessica, as a part-time student, is currently pursuing the Master’s Program in Nursing which includes her Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner license and a Master’s in Midwifery through the prestigious Georgetown University.
Jessica’s ultimate goal is to combine the benefits of both western and eastern medical practices to her patients.
Jessica believes in including the patient as part of the decision-making process. Jessica’s philosophy is that a woman should learn to trust her body and allow nature to take its course in a holistic manner when she is low risk and healthy—intervention is not always the solution.
Jessica will be the strongest and most ardent advocate for mom and baby. Mom must also be educated and informed, and thus, she has responsibilities too, in order to create the most beautiful and awe-inspiring journey that the miracle of life has to offer.
