Mara Evans

D.N.P., C.N.M.

Originally from the Midwest, I knew from a young age I wanted to be a part of reproductive healthcare. As a midwife I have served women and their families since 2010 and feel lucky to have found a profession which combines the art of human connection with the science of evidence-based care.

Certified Nurse Midwives provide care during annual exams, family planning appointments, sexual health visits, and throughout pregnancy and childbirth. I’m grateful to have practiced midwifery in a variety of settings within the US and abroad. I believe every person deserves access to respectful healthcare and my goal is for all pregnant people to experience pregnancy and birth as a time of empowerment.

When I’m not catching babies, you can catch me outdoors exploring Reno and its surrounding natural beauty with my three lively little kids and one incomparable husband.
