The Midwifery Service is a vital part of the Obstetrics Program at Mass General.
The Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is pleased to expand midwifery care for patients on the North Shore.
Starting this month, Katherine Rushfirth, CNM, MSN (she/her/hers), associate chief Nurse-Midwife of the Midwifery Division in the Department of OB/GYN at Mass General and a teaching associate at Harvard Medical School, will be accepting patients for prenatal and postpartum care at the Mass General/North Shore Outpatient Center in Danvers, MA. Katherine provides care in English and Spanish.
Choosing a midwife for your prenatal care means you’ll have a midwife in attendance when you deliver at Mass General.
Mass General midwives provide expert care during pregnancy, labor and postpartum. More than one-quarter of all babies born at Mass General are delivered by midwives. Midwifery care is a safe and wonderful option for the majority of pregnant people.
