Let’s take a moment to get to know Jenny Atzen, C.N.M. at The Group as she explains what she loves most about being a midwife…

"The connection I develop with patients is by far, what I love most about being a midwife. Even after being gone from The Group for 5 years, when I came back patients still remembered me and that connection was still there. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of such special times in our patient's lives."
