And Baby Makes…4,000!
Elizabeth Bary, a certified nurse midwife with WomanCare, a Jeffersonville OB/GYN practice, recently delivered her 4,000th baby. Lincoln Thomas Miller was born at 9:45 a.m. Aug. 16 to parents Jill and Matt Miller.
A passionate advocate for natural birth, Elizabeth takes great pride in the milestone. “My relationship with each mother and every baby is so special. Delivering Lincoln was as exciting and rewarding as the very first baby I delivered, and just as big a privilege. It never, ever gets old.”
Elizabeth received her RN and BSN degrees from Indiana University Southeast, and earned her MSN and CNM designations from the University of Kentucky. The most experienced nurse midwife in the Kentuckiana region, she is a member of the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
Elizabeth has been a driving force behind WomanCare’s next project: the development of the region’s first freestanding birth center. “It will allow low-risk women the option of birthing in a facility outside of the hospital and returning home in a few hours with their newborn,” she explained.
