DAMARA JENKINS

Damara Jenkins, CNM, is an alumnus of Frontier and was part of Class 48. She practices at Woman Care in Indiana . Woman Care is a collaborative environment with three nurse-midwives and three OB/GYNs working together to serve the local area. One unique thing about Woman Care, is that more than 50% of the patients at this practice are from Louisville, Ky., although the practice is located in Indiana. At WomanCare the CNMs attend approximately 500 births each year at the local partner hospital.

Ms. Jenkins is not only following the mission of Frontier by providing midwifery care through her regular job duties, but she is also serving as a preceptor for FNU midwifery students. In addition, she is very involved in a group – Friends of the Birth Center -that is trying to establish a birth center in Louisville.
