About

bethany_headshot1Bethany C. Sasaki, WHNP-BC, CNM, IBCLC

I have been a Registered Nurse since 2000 with experience in pediatrics, emergency/trauma, women’s health and labor and delivery. In 2010 I opened a small lactation business to help fill the gap in care for mothers and babies in our community. My small business soon had to grow into a group practice to meet demand.  I returned to graduate school and became a Nurse Practitioner when I identified the need to add primary healthcare elements to our practice like prescribing medications, diagnosing and treating post partum depression and treating infant tongue tie.  In 2015 we opened the MiLC Clinic where I offer women’s health care in an alternative, woman-centered model.

My style is low-intervention, straight forward and thorough. I provide guidance but allow women to make their own decisions. I am especially interested in treatment of breast pain and breast infections.  I have published research on breast infections and continue to gather data for future studies.

 

Jenny Markovic, CNM

I have been a Registered Nurse since 2010.  I am originally from Minnesota, but now, after living around the US and abroad, I am excited to call Sacramento home. As a nurse, I experienced in labor and delivery, postpartum and newborn care, as well as medical and post-surgical care. Since graduating as a Nurse-Midwife in 2017, I have worked at a free-standing birth center in Denver, CO, and a hospital based midwifery practice in Sacramento. My professional interests include empowering women, natural birth, and working with adolescent populations. My personal interests include traveling, cooking, reading and spending time with my husband and family.

My style is low intervention and woman-centered.  I like to work with families to give them the experience that they are looking for.
