Beaufort Memorial Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialists has added a certified nurse-midwife to its obstetrics-gynecology team.
Catherine Tambroni-Parker has delivered more than 3,000 babies during her 18-year career as a nurse midwife, most recently at Park Ridge Health in Hendersonville, N.C., according to a press release.
She is now seeing patients at the group’s office at 989 Ribaut Road, Suite 201. As a nurse-midwife, she will be delivering babies at Beaufort Memorial’s Birthing Center alongside obstetrics-gynecology specialists Drs. Christopher Benson, Marlena Mattingly, Gregory Miller and Claude Tolbert. The practice’s medical staff also includes certified nurse-midwife Janna Jones Kersh and certified nurse practitioner Maggie Bisceglia.
A graduate of State University of New York Health Science Center at Syracuse with a bachelor of science degree in nursing, Tambroni-Parker served as a primary care, triage, labor and delivery nurse and a maternal-child health nurse/educator in New York for 19 years. After earning her master’s degree in midwifery at SUNY Stony Brook, she worked for 15 years at Oswego obstetrics-gynecology in a rural underserved area on the shore of Lake Ontario.
A mother of three, Tambroni-Parker comes from a long line of health care professionals. Her grandmother and aunt were both midwives in Europe.
