Pam England, M.A., C.N.M.
Pam England is the author of the groundbreaking childbirth book Birthing From Within (1998) and lives, works, writes and paints in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Pam received her nurse-midwifery education from the Frontier School of Family Nursing and Midwifery in Kentucky, and was certified by the American College of Nurse Midwifery in 1979. She practiced midwifery for 16 years in hospital, birth-center, and home-birth settings. After her own two very different experiences of giving birth to her sons, Pam earned a masters degree in psychology-counseling with an emphasis on birth-related psychology from Antioch University. The overwhelmingly positive response to Birthing From Within led to international demand for Pam’s teaching and the development of childbirth mentor and doula trainings and certification programs, still going strong 15 years later. Pam’s most recent book is 2010’s Labyrinth of Birth, and she is currently working on several others.
