MEET: Heather Renz
Heather is one of the Prima Medical Foundation's Midwives who staff the Marin General Hospital Family Birth Center. With over 13 years of experience, she first began working as a midwives' assistant in 1996 in Santa Cruz, CA. The philosophies of midwifery care resonated with her beliefs in the importance of education and support of women during pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum periods. Heather traveled and studied Spanish in several Latin American schools including the University of Havana, Cuba. In addition to her enthusiasm for nurse-midwifery, she enjoys hiking, cooking, knitting, yoga, and spending time with her husband and 3 children.
