MEET JOLENE HAMANN, CNM
I began my nursing career in 1994 in the Air Force. While on active duty during my first pregnancy, I was fortunate enough to be assigned to the care of a group of Certified Nurse-Midwives. It was then that I knew that I was called to become a midwife. I am now blessed enough to be living my dream — providing the woman-centered type of care that was provided to me.
Since 2007, I have been caring for women as a Certified Nurse Midwife and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. I truly enjoy getting to know each woman and family. I am especially committed to comprehensive prenatal care, all types of birth, education, prevention, and well-woman care. My husband’s name is Dave and we have four children – Joshua, Fox, Ryker, and Molly.

• 100% VBAC rate, 100% at home, 9 total.
• 3.5% prenatal transfer to hospital-based care rate (the reasons include gestational diabetes, breech, preterm labor, and placenta previa).
• 1.2% during labor transfer of mom to the hospital rate, none of which were emergencies and all transferred by private vehicle.
• 1.2% postpartum transfer of mom to the hospital rate.
• 1.2% baby transfer to the hospital rate, none of which were emergencies and all transferred by private vehicle.
• 3.5% of moms used nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for labor and birth.
• 23.3% of moms required stitches for vaginal lacerations (tears), 76.7% did not.
