Emily Darnall

Emily Darnall has served women and babies since 2003. She spent most of her nursing career as a neonatal 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.

Emily joined our practice in October of 2015 as the Administrative Director of Natural Beginning Birth Center, but presently works as a CNM in the office, the birth center and occasionally the hospital. Emily earned her Masters degree in Nursing Administration at the University of Texas at Austin in 2010 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 (7) and Vivian (5) who was born at home. To unwind, she enjoys yoga, reading the Sunday paper and puttering around Austin with her dog, Wilder.
