Midwifery Education Program Faculty
All Baystate Midwifery Education Program faculty are masters or doctoral prepared nurse-midwives in the Department of Obstetrics-Gynecology, Division of Midwifery and Community Health.
We all hold faculty appointments in the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine or Tufts University School of Medicine.
And, we are all active in clinical practice with Baystate Midwifery and Women’s Health. This gives our students exposure to more than 10,000 women's health visits and 450 deliveries a year.
Between us, we have more than 110 years of clinical practice and 100 years of faculty experience.

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.
