Emily Darnall, CNM
Emily has served women and babies since 2003. She spent most of her nursing career as a intensive care RN, then transitioned to labor and delivery nursing. Emily discovered her passion for maternal health while caring for babies in need abroad in Romania and Mozambique. Through the pregnancy and birth of her first daughter, she realized her life’s purpose to serve women as a midwife.
She is passionate about promoting midwifery to the women of Austin, while providing more choices for women in pregnancy and birth. Emily believes there is no greater example of the mind-body connection than birth and remains in awe of the transformation of women as they navigate their journey to motherhood. She strives to create the space for women to feel empowered in their healthcare at each stage in her life— she believes that women create the fabric of strong families and communities.
Emily earned her Masters degree in Nursing Administration at the University of Texas at Austin and more recently completed a Masters program in Nurse Midwifery through Frontier Nursing University.
Emily spends her free time with her supportive husband and 2 girls, Eloise and Vivian, who was born at home. To unwind she enjoys practicing yoga, creating art and puttering around the house with her Giant Schnauzer, Boris.
