Jennifer Williams, CNM

Jennifer grew up in Albuquerque and loves living here in New Mexico. She became interested in birth when she had her first child and started to think about the role a loving and supportive birth plays in getting families off to a healthy start. She has been caring for birthing women in various capacities since 1997 and marvels that some of those babies from her early days are old enough to drive. Jennifer has been a certified nurse midwife in Albuquerque since 2004 and is thrilled to be providing care to women as part of a practice as dynamic and caring as Women’s Specialists of New Mexico. She is committed to providing care to her community and loves seeing her patients and their families out and about in town. Jennifer is married to her high school sweetheart, Jim, and they have four wonderful children and four adorable dogs.
