I have been wanting to have a midwife on the show for a long time. It’s a big topic and I knew I had to get it right. That’s why I’m so thrilled to have Gianna Fay on the show today. Gianna Fay is a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) and Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP-BC). She has been a part of 600+ births and has worked in a variety of settings including out of hospital birth centers, large hospital teaching facilities, smaller community hospitals and private practice.
Throughout her career, she has seen pregnant families struggle with navigating the maternity care system. Race and socioeconomic status impact every part of the delivery process and that can make getting the help of a midwife inaccessible for some. After having worked in many different birthing settings, Gianna has decided to work within the hospital system so that she can make her skills and expertise available to everyone.
This episode is being brought to you by Ellement prenatal supplements.
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- Why Gianna felt called to become a midwife
- What types of practice models she has worked in
- What people can expect when working with a midwife who is hospital based
- How midwives and physicians work together
- What the difference is between a midwife and a doula
