“From the moment I learned about midwifery I felt called to this model of care and the impact it has individually and globally. Midwifery makes lifelong differences in the physical and emotional wellbeing of patients and welcomes me into families’ most transformative moments. I continuously find myself in awe of women’s strength and am grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside families through their empowering journeys at Atlanta Gynecology and Obstetrics.”
