Erin worked as a labor and delivery nurse for 14 years and then returned to school to get her Masters in Midwifery. She worked for two years as a hospital based midwife before joining Brookhaven’s team. This is what she has to say about the care she offers;
For me, the greatest strength of midwifery, the reason I became a CNM, is the emphasis on relationships. To give a woman the best possible care, it’s essential to know her as an individual, what’s important to her, what she feels works (or doesn’t) with her body and life. That is too often missing in medical model, large group, offices. My vision for women’s health services at Brookhaven is that clients come in expecting to receive respectful, evidence based care which is responsive to their needs. I hope they leave feeling as though they had a visit with a trusted friend, feeling more like experts on their own health. As a Brookhaven mom myself, I know how good it feels to come in the door and be welcomed by name by women who truly care. I want to offer that same experience to our clients without them needing to have another baby just to come see us!
