Ashley Musil

Midwife and Clinical Director


Ashley is the midwife 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. 

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 studying through the Association of Texas Midwives and hopes to be a midwife by the end of 2018. 

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!

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)!
