More About This Provider

Bio

I started my career as a Registered Nurse, working in Labor and Delivery for 15 years. During this time, I realized there were a limited number of midwives and I wanted to offer women more choices for birth and health care, which prompted me to become a Certified Nurse Midwife. I moved to the South Shore to practice midwifery and, in time, became the co-director of the midwifery laborist program at South Shore Hospital.   

As a midwife, I realized the lack of resources for pregnant and postpartum women with behavioral health issues. To address this, I went and obtained my psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner post-master’s certificate.

Currently, I am the Director of South Shore Health’s hospital-based Perinatal Behavioral Health Program. This program cares for women in preconception, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting, who are experiencing mood disorders, birth trauma, or substance use disorders.

I am passionate about providing safe care for women with mental illness or substance use during pregnancy and postpartum; safeguarding birth options for women by protecting the birth process; educating women about childbirth so they are able to advocate for themselves; and lowering the cesarean birth rate.

I obtained my BSN from Saint Anselm College, and my MSN, post-master’s certificate and DNP at the Frontier Nursing University. I have obtained a Perinatal Mental Health certification from Postpartum Support International. Additionally, I serve as the American College of Nurse-Midwives liaison to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ Maternal Mental Health Task Force.
