Mason has been a Licensed Midwife since 2001 and has helped more than 800 babies into the world.  Her formal midwifery training was completed in a freestanding birth center over the course of two and a half years with an Obstetrician and a Certified Nurse Midwife culminating in her passing the California Challenge Exam through Seattle Midwifery School. She then attended homebirths with various other community midwives and spent 18 months in the volunteer doula program at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez before establishing Nova Midwifery Services in 2001. She holds a B.S. in Health Science from CSU Hayward with an emphasis on Women's Health.  In 2004, Mason served an internship with Shoshana Bennett, past president of PostPartum Support International, in order to better help women coping with postpartum depression and anxiety. When she isn't helping mamas and families, she is raising her wonderful children, a teenage son and preteen daughter.
