Birth Centers – COVID-19
Jami Hain is a certified nurse midwife and owner of Nativiti Family Birth Center in The Woodlands, Texas. She has been a nurse for 28 years and worked as a birth assistant and birth doula for approximately 10 years before becoming a midwife in 2012. She and her husband became the new owners at Nativiti in 2014 when the original owner, Melanie Dossey, was ready to retire.
Her passion is to empower women and families through education and shared decision making when it comes to their health and the health of their families. Helping women to trust the birth process and trust our bodies to birth and feed our babies, as well as providing personalized care for women’s health and pregnancy is the hallmark of her practice. She has been married to the love of her life for 40+ years and enjoys spending time playing board games with family … when she is not catching babies.
