Jennifer Caniglio cannot remember a time when she did not want to deliver babies. Following high school, she chose to enter nursing school and after graduating, began her career in University of Maryland Medical System’s NICU. She loves caring for fragile newborns and enjoys watching them grow and bond with their parents. Following a move to Maryland’s Eastern Shore, she began working on the Labor and Delivery unit at Chester River Hospital Center. Jennifer loved caring for women in labor, but still felt an intense desire to be more involved with the entire process of birth. In 2003, she completed her bachelor’s degree in nursing through the University of Delaware and began her journey to becoming a midwife through the Midwifery Institute at Philadelphia University. She joined Bay Area Midwifery in 2005. She is always amazed at the strength and determination of women in the labor process. She has three children of her own. Having experienced natural birth, epidural birth, and cesarean section, she understands how women feel in labor and believes that women can accomplish anything they set their minds to. She always hopes to be able to hold the hand of a woman no matter what the circumstances, because every woman deserves the right to be heard and have her needs met at this important time in her life.
