After a long but short gestation, See Baby Midwifery’s transition to Atlanta Medical Center has been extremely positive.  We are happy to share with you our new Integrative approach to the Midwifery Model of Care.  In doing so, we’d like to welcome Lynn Fisher, CNM from New York City to our team.    In joining Jackie Kuschner, CNM & Nkechi Brodie, CNM the See Baby Midwives will begin supporting in-hospital births beginning October 16, 2017.  The Integrative Model of Care See Baby Midwives will provide is accompanied by doula support for all births.  The option of See Baby’s Doula Consortium is available as a complimentary service to all patients.  Additionally, privately hired doula support will be offset by a doula stipend provided by See Baby.   

The collaborative model of support involving our providers, doulas and nursing staff at Atlanta Medical Center, developed out of necessity, can become the gold standard for maternity care in Metro Atlanta. This model of support has demonstrated a healthy, enriching and rewarding experience of which our patients have overwhelmingly expressed satisfaction. 

We sincerely “Thank You” for your patience and support during this time of transition for our team.  

As we turn the page together in support of Mothers, we build stronger communities through empowered births – Bring Birth Back!
