Ms Lucinda Michelle Chiszar

Job Title:
  Midwife
Biography:
Lucinda is a California Licensed Midwife (LM) and a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). She started going to births at home as an apprentice midwife in 1995 and also did a short internship at a birth center in 1997. Simultaneously, she spent three years studying herbal medicine. After completing her apprenticeship, she successfully challenged Seattle Midwifery School's three year accredited midwifery program and passed the California Midwifery License Exam. She obtained her license in 1998 and continued practicing in the Bay Area for many years before moving to Modesto, CA in 2006. Lucinda came to Modesto intending to put her midwifery career on hold while her children were still very young. At the time, the area was badly in need of a home birth midwife and on seeing our need she was persuaded to open a practice here as Big Valley Midwives. Since then she has been providing care for mothers and has attended over two hundred births in the San Joaquin Valley.

Ms Brooke Myung

Job Title:
  Midwife
Biography:
Her role is to develop the skills needed to help women and their families successfully navigate their child birth experiences. She does this by assisting the senior midwives in preparing the birth room, accurately charting decisions being made along correct times, and cleaning up afterward. She is responsible for knowing where all of the elements of the birth kit and midwifery equipment are located, and observing how they are used. Brooke became a Certified Nurse Assistant while still she was still a junior in high school. Working after school in a convalescent home through her senior year, she went to work full time caring for the elderly while attending classes at Modesto Junior College. She intended to work and take classes for a year before transferring into a university. The whole plan changed when she fell in love, and soon she was married. In a short time, she was expecting a baby, and stopped working to prepare for motherhood. After her first baby was born she began to understand what she had been reading and learning through her pregnancy in a different light.

Ms Madeleine Shernock

Job Title:
  Midwife
Biography:
Madeleine has been supporting families as a doula since 2010, and has been assisting at out-of-hospital births as an apprentice midwife since 2013. She is in her final year at Midwives College of Utah, which provides both academic and hands-on midwifery skills training. Through her experiences working with childbearing families, she has come to respect pregnancy and childbirth as intense and transformative. Each birth is unique and special, and demands individualized care and attention. It is her hope that every family can have a positive and memorable adventure bringing life into the world, and she is privileged to provide her support and encouragement to Lucinda's clients as a member of their team.
