Our Staff

 

The staff at Wellspring is here to serve you in whatever capacity we can. Check out the team below and feel free to call us with any questions you have. 

 

Ashley Musil

Midwife and Clinical Director

 

Ashley is a midwife and Clinical Director at Wellspring Midwifery Care & Birth Center. She has been a licensed, practicing midwife in the Houston area since 2014 and feels divinely called to her vocation. She opened the birth center in 2016 with her mother, Karla Mercieca. Read more about Ashley's background and family. 

Karla Mercieca

Front Office and Business Administrator

 

You'll see Karla at the front desk when you walk in the door. She is always a friendly face and good for conversation. She handles appointment scheduling, payments, and assists with insurance needs. She opened the birth center in 2016 with her daughter, Ashley Musil, and has enjoyed learning all about the birth world since then. She is also our main placenta encapsulator. 

Dawn Housos

Staff Midwife

 

Dawn has been a Texas licensed midwife and CPM since 2017 and has experience in the birth center and home birth environments. She lives in Conroe with her husband and five children. She started working part-time at Wellspring Birth Center in January 2018, and the staff loves having her here. Her presence at birth is calming and understanding, and she is well trained to handle any situation.

Jolene Brannon

Student Midwife

 

Jolene has been apprenticing at Wellspring since September 2016. She is studying to become a midwife and attends nearly all office visits and births with Ashley. She is the senior apprentice at Wellspring Midwifery Care & Birth Center. She is studying through the Association of Texas Midwives and hopes to be a midwife by the end of 2018. 

Name

Student Midwife

 

As of early September, we are in the hiring process for a new student midwife, so keep an eye out for the next addition to the Wellspring birth team. 

Taryn Daub

Childbirth Educator and Birth Assistant

 

Taryn has been working with Wellspring since its opening in 2016. She teaches Bradley Method Childbirth Classes at the birth center on a regular basis. She also assists at births as a birth assistant. You may also see her at the front desk from time to time as she occasionally covers for Karla. No matter what she is doing at Wellspring, she does it with a smile!

Ashley Parker

Birth Assistant

 

Ashley is a nurse with a special interest in labor and delivery outside the hospital. She started working with us mid-2018 and really enjoys supporting women as they bring their babies into the world. Since it can get confusing having two attendants named Ashley, we often call her Parker to distiguish her from the midwife. She has been a great addition to the Wellspring team, and we look forward to working with her for many years to come. 

Tania Nuezca

Birth Assistant

 

Tania also started working at Wellspring in mid-2018, but she has been a childbirth educator for several years. She has also attended a few births as a doula, and she felt she could be of service to Wellspring clients as well. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the birth team, especially when it comes to positioning and comfort measures for labor. We're glad to have her working with us. 

Cliodhna Griffin

Childbirth Educator

 

Cliodhna has also been an affiliate of Wellspring Birth Center since it opened in 2016. She teaches Hypnobirthing classes at the center on a regular basis and often makes an appearance at special events we host at the birth center from time to time. Cliodhna is a big advocate of the birth center and loves to tell people how great she thinks we are (and we feel the same about her)!
