My name is Amy Loughlin and I have been practicing midwifery with OB-Gyn
Associates since 2007. Midwifery has been my calling since the birth of
my son Griffin. As a young mother I felt that the midwife who delivered
my son not only brought him into the world but helped to transition me
into parenthood. Heck, if I could give birth to a baby I could surely be a mom!
I became a certified nurse midwife in 2002 after graduating from the University
of Maryland at Baltimore. My first job as a midwife was in rural South
Carolina working at a federally funded community health center. It was
here that I learned about “being with women” which is what
midwifery is all about. I also became a National Health Service Corp Recipient,
a program that encourages providers to work in underserved communities.
After five years in South Carolina my husband and son, both avid surfers,
asked if we could move to the coast. Our search for a small beach town
brought us to St. Augustine and we couldn’t be happier!
Working for OB-Gyn Associates is wonderful. We serve a varied population
of families thorough different stages of life. I truly enjoy being the
person to help women transition into parenthood just like I did 17 years
ago. I also enjoy educating women who want to space out their families.
Empowering women to care for themselves is more rewarding than I ever imagined.
