Welcome to The Department of OB/GYN and Women's Health at Cambridge Health Alliance. Our department is made up of teams of dedicated obstetrician/ gynecologists, nurse midwives, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, doulas, childbirth educators and specialty nurses who look forward to caring for you and your family.
Our physicians hold joint clinical appointment at both Harvard Medical School and Tufts University School of Medicine. They work closely with our colleagues in primary care, newborn services, mental health, family planning, nutrition, and family medicine to provide multidisciplinary coordinated women's health care.

Certified Nurse Midwives
Our nurse midwives are trained in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery, and are certified by The American College of Nurse-Midwives. In Massachusetts, Nurse-Midwives are licensed as advanced practice nurses and are authorized to write prescriptions. Our midwives, many of whom are bicultural and bilingual, provide complete care throughout your pregnancy, labor and birth, including prenatal physical exams; lab work; individualized teaching; treatment of common health problems, referrals for amniocentesis and ultrasound; and natural childbirth.
