Our next Northgate MOPS at Night will feature Certified Nurse Midwife Cecilia Stearns from the Women’s Care Center at United Memorial Hospital. She will be speaking on the topics of general women’s health and depression. She will discuss a number of topics and answer some questions.
She is a nurse practitioner/midwife at the Women’s Care Center in Batavia, providing services to normally healthy women without insurance in Genesee County and surrounding areas. She was instrumental in developing the Tot Saver program in Genesee County in 1986, and has provided gynecological services for those who cannot afford it through the Breast Health Partnership.
She served on the Board of Directors of the Batavia YWCA, and has taught many RN students at GCC and in many other programs. She has been at the forefront of midwifery both at the state and national levels, and was a founding board member of the New York State Association of Licensed Midwives, serving as their second president. She has authored many grant proposals and drafted legislation for changing and improving the scope of practice of midwifery in New York State. With all that Stearns has done, her greatest contribution is undoubtedly the children she has delivered. Cecilia and her husband, Richard, live in Byron.
