Posted By: Kate Bauer Career Center,
Holy Family Birth Center (Weslaco, TX)

The midwife group at Holy Family Birth Center in Weslaco, Texas, is seeking midwives to join us in providing patient-centered care in the beautiful Rio Grande Valley. Holy Family Services, Inc., has been operating as a freestanding birth center and clinic since 1984, with a legacy not only of providing crucial healthcare in an underserved and under-resourced part of our country, but also of serving as a learning center for student nurses and midwives, and clinicians wanting out-of-hospital birth experience.

We are focused on providing holistic, culturally sensitive, individualized, and evidence-based care to our clients. Our model of care incorporates the use of fellows and students which is part of what makes Holy Family so unique. We value education not only to our clients but also to the staff that rotate through.

Our services include primarily prenatal care, labor support, delivery and postpartum follow-up, postpartum home visits for mom and baby, lactation support, gynecological concerns, and well-woman exams. In addition to our main clinic, we offer well woman and primary care services via our mobile unit which travels to local colonias, as well as prenatal and well-woman care for new immigrant families at the local Respite Center.

Fellowships are for new graduates or seasoned nurse-midwives that would like to gain out-of-hospital birth experience and solidify their midwifery training. Applicants must meet Texas RN and CNM requirements. This is a bilingual region, so Spanish language skills are very helpful, but you do not need to be fluent to apply, as long as you're open and willing to learn. Compensation includes a moderate salary, onsite living, and a food stipend.

Midwives with at least 1-2 years experience encouraged to apply; motivated new graduates are also welcome to be in touch.
