Carol Bunker, CNM
"I was delivered in my grandparents' home in Chickasha, Oklahoma, by a strong and independent young mother who believed in the ability of a woman's body to give birth naturally, as well as the importance of breastfeeding, even at a time when it was not socially acceptable. Her attitude influenced me in my beliefs and philosophies about childbirth and in my desire to have children and to become involved in women's healthcare. I have three children, including my daughter Anna who will be receiving her care at ABC for the son she is expecting."
"I 'discovered' midwifery as a viable option of care during nursing school from my OB instructor. She opened my eyes to the knowledge that not only was midwifery still being practiced in the United States, but that there was a goal to increase the number of midwives available to care for women. That awareness lit a fire in me that never died and culminated in my midwifery education."
"I feel so fortunate to have joined Amy, Leslie and the rest of the ABC family in becoming part of this long-standing tradition of serving families in this most special time of their lives. I look forward to caring for both existing and new clients who seek this special kind of empowering care."
Carol holds an Associate Degree in Nursing from Oklahoma State University and a Bachelor's Degree in Science from the University of Central Oklahoma. She practiced as a labor and delivery nurse for over 20 years before earning her Certificate in Nurse Midwifery from the Institute of Midwifery, Women and Health in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2003. She graduated in 2004 from Philadelphia University with a Master's degree in Midwifery and practiced at Women's Preventive Health Services in Oklahoma City before relocating to Texas in 2007 to practice full scope midwifery. She comes to ABC with a total of 27 years experience in women's healthcare. Carol's philosophy is to believe in the strength and ability of a woman's body to give birth with minimal intervention.
