Hello Everyone!–Have you ever wondered what it would be like to witness the miracle of birth several times a year (without having to go through labor, of course)?  Just ask Nicole Marshall who has a fascinating career as a midwife.  You’ll learn that being a midwife is more than assisting with childbirth, it includes knowledge in a variety of skills.

NICOLE MARSHALL holds a bachelor’s degree from Fordham University and dual master’s degrees in Nurse-Midwifery and Women’s Health from Columbia University.  Nicole’s interest in women’s health combined with her passion for social justice and women’s rights drew her to a career in midwifery. She currently works as a staff midwife in a high volume urban hospital serving a resource poor community in Paterson, New Jersey.  Since beginning her career in 2006, Nicole has worked in many settings including as a research clinician at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as a health educator in Uganda, and as a midwife in a small midwife-owned private practice in New York City.  Nicole provides holistic women’s health care and is passionate about reproductive justice.
