Meet our team

You will likely meet many friendly faces if you choose to have your baby at the Salem Health Family Birth Center. The descriptions below will help you become familiar with the doctors, midwives and unit leaders you may see when you are here.

Your family’s wishes, knowledge, values, beliefs and cultural background are incorporated into the planning and delivery of care in our birthing center. We will do our best to follow your birth plan while still offering other options if the need arises.


Obstetricians and gynecologists from practices across Salem and Keizer are happy to share your birth experience at Salem Health.


Our midwives are master’s-prepared certified nurse-midwives (CNMs).

OB hospitalists

OB hospitalists are doctors who partner with your midwife or OB/GYN by staying at the hospital full-time (rather than having an office at another building or clinic).

Genetic counselor

Direct care or genetic consultation is provided for women with medical or surgical disorders that contribute to high-risk pregnancy.

Registered nurses (RNs)

Our RNs are committed to providing you and your baby the highest level of care during your stay with us.

Lactation consultants

Our lactation consultants are registered nurses who are also international board certified lactation consultants.
