Circle for Life Midwifery has added a new certified nurse midwife to its practice. Jemine L. Wayman, CNM, DNP, comes to the Shelton midwifery office with more than nine years of experience.

“I have decided to relocate to Connecticut to allow me the opportunity to be closer to family while sharing my expertise and experience with women in a community that I have been a part of since childhood,” says Wayman, a native of Bridgeport and a nurse midwifery graduate of University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

Circle for Life Midwifery offers midwifery services, natural childbirth, well woman care and holistic gynecology to woman of all ages. Nutritional, homeopathic, herbal and lifestyle recommendations are an element of the patient consultation. The practice was founded by Sarah Najamy, CNM, and Paula Cate, CNM—with their decades of experience both in obstetrics and well women gynecology—to provide the clinical direction for the new St. Vincent’s Medical Centers Natural Child Birth Center, located in Bridgeport. It incorporates one-on-one care by the certified nurse midwives, water birth and a private home-like center with early discharge also an option.

In alignment with Circle for Life Midwifery’s mission, Wayman believes “in empowering women, by providing them with education, guidance and the necessary tools that will enable them to make appropriate decisions conducive to their lifestyles.”
