Karla Jo Bennett - Certified Nurse Midwife - "I fell in love with the process of birth while giving birth to my own 6 children, and as labor support for my family and friends. I have been involved with the care of women and babies for close to 35 years, first as a doula, then as a Labor and Delivery nurse, and now as a Certified Nurse Midwife. In those years I have attended more than 2,500 births, many as a L&D nurse in the hospital, where I was always the go-to nurse for the women who wanted a natural, unmedicated birth.
As a CNM I now offer women the choice of out-of-hospital birth - the natural and safe delivery of babies in their home, or in a birth center, where it can unfold in an unhurried, peaceful, and loving manner. I firmly believe in a woman's right to choose her provider and the manner in which she gives birth, knowing that if a woman is given education and support she will choose what is best for her and her family. I love educating women about their pregnancies and births, fostering trust in the normalcy and beauty of natural childbirth, and supporting families as they create births that are gentle and safe. As a CNM I can prescribe medication, if it's needed, but most often find that herbs or other alternative modalities can take care of many common conditions.
I also educate women about their bodies throughout their lifespan, promoting good health and nutrition. I am licensed as a Certified Nurse Midwife and educated as a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, as well.

Karla Bennett is a wonderful midwife! She is very calm and confident with what she does and I felt that I could completely trust her judgement. I never felt like she was pushy at all and only gave me constant encouragement and reassurance.
I also felt that I could really trust Karla as a midwife with her eight years previous experience as a labor and delivery nurse. Thanks Karla for you true gift of caring about others and guiding them on this special journey. Ruth N
AMAZING, I am so happy with the care we received from Karla. She put up with tons of questions and happily answered every one. She made us feel like we were her only client. She was always available with a calming presence. We have all intentions of having all of our kids with her help! Jessica E.
I recently gave birth to my first baby with Karla as my midwife.She was professional but also very personal, going above and beyond the standard of care most women receive during pregnancy. I had such a positive and comfortable experience and I know it was all because of her exceptional care. Joclynn K
