TDLR: West Texas Midwife Ordered to Stop Practicing


AUSTIN – On March 8, 2023, Travis County District Court Judge Amy Clark Meachum signed a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) prohibiting Leah Hernandez from practicing midwifery without a license and from representing herself as a licensed midwife to the public.

Court documents allege that Ms. Hernandez is practicing midwifery negligently and without a license in the Amarillo area. The Randall County Sheriff’s Office has an ongoing investigation into the matter.

The TRO is not a determination of guilt and will remain in place only until a hearing scheduled for March 21, 2023, in the 345th District Court of Travis County.

It is illegal for anyone to practice midwifery without being licensed as a midwife, certified nurse-midwife, or physician. If you have information that anyone, including Leah Hernandez, is practicing midwifery without a license in Texas, please file a complaint with TDLR:
