Aloha, I am Jasmine Maes. I am a Hawaii Licensed Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife.  I provide loving and comprehensive midwifery care to families on Kaua’i Island.  The care I offer includes holistic prenatal and home birth care, ongoing postpartum and newborn care, and lactation support.  I have been a Certified Professional Midwife since 2005. I specialize in water birth and in caring for families desiring a Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC.)  I weave the tools of nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, movement, and counseling into safe and vibrant care for pregnant families. I strive to provide evidence-based care that supports parents’ choices, while incorporating the art and science of traditional midwifery.  I am certified in Neonatal Resuscitation and adult CPR..

I began my home birth practice in Colorado, midwifing and welcoming babies at home for almost ten years.  During those years, I met my wonderful husband, Andy, and birthed our two beautiful children, Omar and Anja.  We moved to Northern California in 2014, where I continued to work as a California Licensed Midwife, caring for families at Thrive Birth Center, as well as attending the births of my beloved homebirth clients.  We have enjoyed a warm welcome on Kaua’i, and I feel honored to be serving the families of our beautiful island home. 

I am an apprenticeship-trained midwife and have learned my craft by attending birth under the supervision of experienced midwives, while immersed in serving my community.  I met the qualifications of a Certified Professional Midwife by having thousands of skills and experiences witnessed and verified by my teachers. I became a CPM by passing the North American Registry of Midwives exam, and by completing skills testing.  I began attending birth as an assistant and doula in 1998.  As a student, I attended workshops with the Farm Midwives in Tennessee and attended home, birth center, and hospital births in Florida, Texas, Oregon, and Colorado.  I have completed training as an Emergency Medical Technician.  I see birth as the ultimate teacher and midwifery as a life-long journey of learning, with constant opportunities to expand my knowledge and skills.  I have had the pleasure of training five midwifery students who are now practicing CPMs.  I look forward to meeting you and hearing about the birth of your dreams.
