Allison Molinski, CNM, received her Master of Science in Nurse Midwifery at Columbia University. She grew up primarily in Orange County, but also lived abroad for a number of years in South Africa, Venezuela, and Canada due to her dad's job as an engineer. With a bachelor's degree in International Development from UC Berkeley, she cultivated a passion for women's rights activism. After volunteering in Indonesia at a public health clinic for women and children, she returned to the United States to become a midwife in the Orange County and Long Beach area.
I became a midwife to become a resource for women in my community. So many of us have questions about our bodies – and about contraception, sex, menstrual cycles, vaginal health, childbirth, etc., and feel uncomfortable asking questions or having these conversations. I love that I am able to sit with women and create space for them to ask intimate questions. My goal is to offer information and resources and have a woman walk away feeling more empowered and confident about her body, her health, and her overall well-being.
Outside of medicine, Allison loves traveling, camping, skiing, and spending time at the beach with her family. She has two beautiful children, both delivered by midwives.
