Meet the team

Ginger Breedlove, PhD, CNM,
FACNM, FAAN

CEO, Founder and Principal Consultant

Solving the shortage of women’s health care providers in the US is a daunting task that will involve coordinating stakeholders from every level of the medical community. There are few people in the world today who understand this complex issue as well as Ginger Breedlove, PhD, CNM, APRN, FACNM, FAAN.

Lesley Rathbun, MSN, CNM,
FNP, FACNM

CCO, Co-Founder and Senior Consultant

The main job of any OBGYN or Midwife is to ensure the health of mothers and babies, but birth in the United States is still a business. Lesley Rathbun has spent the last 30 years advocating for women’s health while becoming a well-known figure in the fields of birth center entrepreneurship and legislation.

Arden Schwenker, CPCO

Chief Financial Officer and Senior Consultant

Arden has spent over a decade in the healthcare industry with a primary focus on midwifery and birth centers. Before joining Grow Midwives, she was the Director of Operations and Chief Compliance Officer for a medical billing service. Arden has extensive experience in medical billing and coding, revenue cycle management, health care compliance and contract negotiations.

Joseph Booth, JD,
Mdiv., FAAML

Chief Legal Counsel

Today’s Physicians and Midwives spend the majority of their early careers learning how to administer care. So much so that learning the legal and business aspects of running a practice simply isn’t feasible. The legalities surrounding maternity care require careful navigation by a knowledgeable advocate.

At Grow Midwives, we offer contract reviews. The review can include comments and insights from Joseph W. Booth, who is an attorney licensed to practice law in Kansas and Missouri only, and Ginger Breedlove PhD, CNM, FACNM, FAAN. While we can share our general experience and scholastic knowledge, neither Grow Midwives nor Joseph W. Booth can offer you legal advice. We cannot stand in a legal representational role or provide legal advice. By agreeing to go forward any such any interaction between Grow Midwives involving Mr. Booth does not create an attorney-client relationship and will not present a conflict in any future relationship.
