Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
ObGyn North Austin PLLC and Natural Beginning Birth Center are excited to recruit a part-time CNM to join our midwife team. This collaborative practice functions with 4 full-time CNMs, 4 full-time OBGYNs and is expanding to include an additional part-time midwife. It is the first collaborative practice in Austin, Texas beginning this model 11 years ago. The birth center which is attached to the main office was opened in 2013 to offer women exceptional care in both in-hospital and out-of-hospital environments.
The CNMs cover call for the birth center only (not hospital) and will be starting a fixed schedule in January. The part-time position to be filled will include two 24 hour call shifts, Friday 0800-0800 and Sunday 0800-0800, and 1 clinic day Thursday 0800-1615. Opportunities are available to expand skills to include colposcopy, IUD insertions, etc.
The birth center typically delivers 10-15 patients per month. The hospital is immediately across the street from the birth center to increase safety when transports are necessary. The birth assistants are all Labor & Delivery RNs with BLS and NRP certifications. The relationship between birth center and hospital staff is excellent.
As our census grows into the new year, we are excited to be expanding our team from 4 to 4.5 CNMs. We are looking for a candidate with prior out-of-hospital birth experience, experience with neonatal resuscitation, and a passion for a woman's right to choose her birth setting. Skill with IUD placement would be preferable. We look forward welcoming a new member to our team.
