In this episode, I interview certified nurse midwife Olivia Favela-Gary. Olivia has been a CNM for over five years, and has been a registered nurse for 10 years. She currently practices in Los Angeles and Southern California in a Federally Qualified Health Center, and attends births in a hospital setting working mostly with underserved and high risk populations. She also frequently works as a first assistant for cesarean births. Olivia hosts the podcast This American Midwife, and is mom to a daughter and a son.
Olivia reveals what it’s like to give care in the L.A. area, and the special needs required by people in vulnerable populations – such as immigrants, women who are trafficked and abused, or those who are homeless or drug addicted.
We also discuss how to teach doctors about the midwifery model of care, and we cover the evidence on induction of labor.
