PAMELA ROSSER, CNM
My desire to become a midwife began during my second pregnancy when I choose to have my baby with midwives in an out of hospital setting. The difference between the care I received with midwives and the care I had received in my first pregnancy and birth with a doctor in a hospital was dramatic.
In 1993, I graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry School of Health Related Professions as a Certified Nurse Midwife. I worked for three years as a CNM in a variety of settings both hospital and birth center gaining experience. Then in 1997 I happily joined Louise Aucott, CNM at Midwifery Care Associates.
Heather Daniel, CNM and Danielle Melican, CNM came to us first as students. We immediately saw they had the passion and heart of true midwives and were hopeful that some day they would join our practice as it grew. Our wishes have come true and now together we offer a full scope midwifery service that includes home and hospital birth in addition to gynecologic care for women of all ages.
Our support of midwifery extends to incorporate participation as clinical preceptor and guest lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania Nurse Midwifery Program, and as clinical preceptor for numerous educational programs.
I live in Pennsylvania with my dear mid-husband Kip and my geriatric cats. I have two wonderful grown sons, Zevan and Cody. I love to garden and cook and cuddle all the babies.
HEATHER DANIEL, CNM., MS, WHNP
I have had a fascination with birth and healing since a very young age. While obtaining a Biology degree at Mount Holyoke College I was pre-med and planned to be an obstetrician. After shadowing some Doctors, I was discouraged and began to seek out professions that might give a different type of care.
As a new midwife, I was lucky enough to work at the Wilmington Birth Center, Bryn Mawr Birth Center and Greater Philadelphia Health Action, a group of inner city clinics in Philadelphia. My love of midwifery grew, but I never forgot my time with Pam and Louise. I was delighted when they asked me to join their group, Midwifery Care Associates, in 2012.
Over the years I have also worked as a Doula, clinical preceptor at University of Pennsylvania and childbirth educator. My greatest achievement has been the birth of my two children, Ophelia and Maxwell. I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, Chris, two kids, dog and cat.
