GINGER BREEDLOVE, PhD, CNM, FACNM, FAAN

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

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.

JOSEPH BOOTH, JD, Mdiv., FAAML

IN-HOUSE 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.

“There are few leaders in the American maternal health system that I respect and admire more than Ginger and Lesley. They have improved the wellbeing of countless moms and babies, not only through their own clinical practices, but through building professional bridges and laying the foundation for how midwives and physicians, birth centers and hospitals, can and should work together.”

- NEEL SHAH, MD, MPP, FACOG

“Ginger has been my ideal model of professional midwifery for over 20 years...  It was Ginger’s wisdom and professional demeanor, tireless research into best practices and seasoned leadership that made the practice a success...  She combines a unique mix of experience, warmth, intelligence, practicality and passion which she brings to every project to which she commits.”

Grow Midwives

Even from rural MO thru a cold/rainy week, a trip planned months ago blending work with fall fly fishing - I’m grateful for the Internet and opportunity to work with so many passionate midwives.

So far this week assisted with several contracts, coaching sessions, negotiating job offers, discussions on starting private midwifery practice and providing a CME session for Healthy Babies Healthy Mothers Georgia this afternoon.

The only way to advance midwifery is to use your strong patient advocacy voice in key conversations requiring a strong professional (self-advocacy) voice.
