Job Openings

Thank you for considering an employment opportunity with Believe Midwifery Services, LLC. Our practice is always seeking high quality professionals to enhance the care provided by the midwifery team. Before applying we encourage you to read through our About Us page and read the introduction on our homepage to see if our mission is one you can passionately support.

Midwifery Birth Assistants

We are looking for a few more birth assistants to add to our team. This person would be on-call a minimum of ten, twenty-four hour days per month and no more than twenty days each month. Assistants are on-call for any mother who may birth within their shift, throughout our territory which extends from as far north as Merrilville or as south as Terre Haute. The outlining areas aren’t as common though, as most of our births are in the Indianapolis area.

We do require successful completion of our midwifery assistant course and NRP before being considered for hire. One does not need to have any additional medical or nursing training to be considered, but must have reliable transportation, childcare, and a supportive family. The lifestyle of a midwifery assistant can be very demanding.

 

Midwifery Office Assistant

The Midwifery Assistant works within the clinic day, assisting the nurse-midwife with client appointments. The Midwifery Assistant’s duties would include checking in clients, obtaining vitals, sitting in on client visits to assist with charting, coordinating care plans with the nurse-midwife, drawing lab specimens, teaching group classes, returning triage calls and more. This person would also be required to take birth call monthly after completing our Midwifery Assistant training and NRP courses.

A background in healthcare is preferable, although the skills of this position can be taught on the job. A CNA, LPN or RN would already have many of the necessary skills required for this job, but those without this background may certainly apply.

 

Boutique Associates

Boutique associates are needed for the Red Raspberry Boutique in Carmel. Associates would be responsible for daily operations of the boutique, including cash handing, checking out clients and customers, organization of the boutique, fulfilling online orders, and teaching our product lines to clients. They may also assist with social media, marketing, and teaching classes.

 

Tips for Applicants

We are a hard working team and want members who will enhance our vision and live what they preach. Please read the entire website. Too often we have applicants come in who aren’t familiar with midwifery and have never heard of functional medicine. While we are willing to train the right person, we expect you to invest as well and this requires educating yourself about our practice and mission prior to scheduling an interview.

Think about how you would benefit our team, what qualities you offer, how a manager could get the best out of you, and if our mission inspires you. If so, how? Are there any circumstances at home or in your personal life that would interfere with your performance at this clinic and the position with which you are applying? Do you enjoy change and striving for a common goal? Lastly, come prepared with a copy of your resume and dress to impress.

Retail Boutique

Complementary and alternative healthcare is a growing passion of Dr. Lane’s. As a student herbalist and an essential oil enthusiast, Dr. Lane incorporates many diverse modalities into her treatment plans. The Red Raspberry Boutique, in fact, evolved from the realization that her clients would benefit from carefully selected products combined in one place, each specific to the needs of women as recommended by their Nurse Midwife.
