JESSICA MILLS, APRN, CNM
Jessica has always been inspired by the strength of women and the miracle of birth. After finishing her Bachelors in Nursing over 12 years ago she went on to become an Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner and complete her Masters in Nurse-Midwifery at Frontier Nursing University, the birthplace of nurse-midwifery in the United States and the #1 rated midwifery program in the US that year (beating out competing programs including Yale and Georgetown) and the highest level of credentialing available to midwives. She is proud to serve women and families throughout Southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts.
Every growing family deserves to have someone there to guide and assist them in making educated choices about their pregnancy, and remind them that they can trust the strength of their bodies during this time. She strives to provide unbiased information and emotional support.
Jessica has been happily married to her high school sweetheart for over 20 years. Together they have 5 beautiful children and enjoy homesteading, homeschooling and fostering children.
