Capital OBGYN Associates of Texas

Danielle is a Certified Nurse Midwife. Her practice is at Capital Ob-Gyn Associates of Texas. Danielle provides well-woman and obstetric care to all ages. Her practice is unique because patients can see her all the way through their pregnancy, and deliver with her at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center. This is personal patient care that provides continuity through every step of the process. The physicians in the practice who Danielle works with are there as collaborative physicians.  If a medical situation requires a patient to have a “high risk” title, then the doctors will collaborate, but these patients will still have Danielle as their midwife through delivery. The personal attention to every patient, through every step of the process, makes Danielle a wonderful choice for women who desire a true partner through their pregnancy and birth, and beyond.

River Place OB/GYN

Originally from Portland, Oregon, Madeleine always had an interest in working in reproductive healthcare. It was while assisting births alongside midwives in the Bay Area that she decided to pursue a career as a CNM. After graduating summa cum laude with a BA in Anthropology at San Francisco State University, she then went to Columbia University and received a BSN in nursing then a Master’s degree in midwifery. While studying in New York City she had the opportunity to work with a diverse population in hospitals throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx. After graduating, Madeleine provided care to an underserved population with a federally qualified health care center in Connecticut. Madeleine relocated to Texas with her husband this past year, and is excited to make Austin her new home.


As a midwife, she is focused on providing women’s health care that is evidence-based, compassionate, and always mindful of the individual. Madeleine believes it is crucial to provide care that empowers women and families, and develops relationships built on respect and trust, whether you are getting your first IUD, beginning menopause, or having your third baby. She will be attending births at North Austin Medical Center as well as providing prenatal, postpartum and gynecologic care in the clinic. She is thrilled to join such a warm and supportive team at River Place OB/GYN!
