Midwifery Education Program Faculty

All Baystate Midwifery Education Program faculty are masters prepared nurse-midwives with appointments in the Tufts University School of Medicine Department of Obstetrics-Gynecology in the Division of Midwifery and Community Health.

Between us, we have more than 110 years of clinical practice and 100 years of faculty experience.

And, we are all active in clinical practice. This gives our students access to more than 10,000 women's health visits and 400 deliveries a year.

Everyone Benefits From Professional Balance

Our faculty find the balance of classroom teaching, clinical precepting and independent practice especially unique and rewarding.

Clinical Practice and Precepting

Our practice with Baystate Midwifery and Women's Health provides full scope care to women at a variety of settings, including four community health centers and the Hampden County Women's Correctional Center. At Baystate Medical Center, midwives with faculty expertise make up the Midwifery Triage Program and the Midwifery OB Team Program.

The collaborative relationships we have with our physician colleagues in the Department of Obstetrics-Gynecology, in the medical center as a whole, and with other CNM practices in the area provides our students with exposure to additional clinical and educational situations.

Research and Leadership

Most faculty have participated in funded research, published or edited in professional publications, and presented at national meetings.

We are active in professional organizations at the national or regional level as well.
