Jaime Shapiro, LM, CPM is a Licensed Midwife under the Medical Board of California and a Certified Professional Midwife under the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM). Her formal education and training consisted of the completion of a 3 year accredited Midwifery school and 3 years of apprenticeship with a busy homebirth practice. She also spent time as a student in Senegal, West Africa at a small but busy, rural maternity center.  She is a member of The Bay Area Homebirth Collective & regularly attends Peer Review. 

Jaime landed in the world of women’s health after spending years self-healing through many different holistic healing traditions. After exploring the many different avenues of healing and spending time in other countries, witnessing both the beauty and challenges of different models of health care around the world, it was clear to her what kind of healer she wanted to be – one that honors the mystery and complexity of the body and trusts our inner – knowing, one that holds great reverence for the power within us all to heal and overcome great challenge.

Jaime is also a practitioner of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™, an essential oil educator, and a level III Reiki practitioner. She works with women throughout their lives, not just during the childbearing year, supporting women in having healthy cycles, optimal fertility, strong pregnancies, empowered births, supported postpartums, healthy digestion, and nourished spirits.  She focuses on prevention and wellness through the use of many non-allopathic healing modalities - including herbal remedies, essential oils, nutritional &  lifestyle support,  the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™, and Reiki healing.  She is passionate about empowering women to take responsibility for their health through education & informed choice. The care of a midwife honors and nurtures the whole woman - body, mind, and soul.                     

Jaime is honored to have served hundreds of families in the Bay Area and continues to feel immense pleasure and gratitude in being “with woman”.
