Kattie Jones, RM, CPM
Member At Large
Kattie has working with expecting mothers and their wonderful babies since 2003. She worked as an apprentice and a Midwife at a birth center where she attended both home and birth center births in Bozeman, MT from 2010-2015.
She was born and raised in Mexico, to a large family most of whom had home-births. She is fluent in Spanish and English. She was born into the hands of a midwife, and that very same midwife caught her first daughter.
Yo e estado trabajando con madres que esperan a sus maravillosos bebés desde el año 2003. Yo e trabajado como aprendiz y partera en un “centro de nacimientos” donde tuve el honor de asistir a nacimientos en el hogar y en un centro de nacimientos en Bozeman, Montana durante 2010-2015.
Nací en Mexico en manos de una partera, y esa misma partera recibió a mi primera hija. Vengo de una familia numerosa que la mayoría de los partos fueron en el hogar. ¡Yo hablo español e inglés con fluidez! Mi intención es integrar sus sueños y deseos para un nacimiento ideal en forma segura con atención basada en evidencia y mi experiencia en general.
