Aimee Clark

Aimee loves working with women and their families.  She is passionate about patient care, physiologic birth and honoring birth choices.  She believes in educating patients thoroughly with the latest evidence-based guidelines so they can make informed decisions about their care.  She cherishes the long-lasting relationships she forges with patients and is delighted when she is able to care for them during multiple pregnancies as well as for non-pregnancy related issues.  

Aimee became part of the Chicago birthing community in 2009.  As a birth doula and childbirth educator, she attended home and hospital births and taught childbirth education classes for hundreds of families-to-be.  Aimee has been a midwife assistant with Gentle Birth Care since July 2014, though she also apprenticed as a student with GBC in the summer of 2012.  She went to nursing school at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she is also completing her Masters of Science, Certified Nurse Midwife degree.  Aimee’s previous experience includes working with moms and babies while in the Peace Corps in Guinea, West Africa, and doing non-profit medical education in Chicago.    

Aimee is the mother of two children, one born at home with Hillary, and the other with hospital-based midwives.  In her free time, she likes to read, knit, exercise and go on adventures with her children and husband.  You will often find her looking for interesting rocks and beach glass along the shores of Lake Michigan.  

I have officially been an assistant with Gentle Birth Care since July 2014, though I also apprenticed as a student with GBC in the summer of 2012.  I became a Registered Nurse (RN) at the University of Illinois at Chicago and I’m currently in school to become a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM).
