UPMC welcomes new nurse midwife
UPMC welcomes Jessica Callahan, MSN, CNM, WHNP-BC, to the care team at SH OB/GYN in Williamsport.
Callahan is a certified nurse midwife and board-certified women’s health care nurse practitioner. She received her master’s degree in nursing from Yale University School of Nursing, Orange, Conn. Before joining UPMC, she served as a maternity nurse for two years at Middlesex Hospital, Middletown, Conn.
“As a midwife, I care for women across their lifespan, providing gynecological care, family planning services, wellness services, and menopause care,” said Callahan.
“I build a relationship with each woman so I can understand what her health and wellness goals are for the stage of life she’s in,” she said. “We then work together to achieve her health goals so she can live life to the fullest.”
Certified nurse midwives are health professionals licensed to provide care to women from adolescence through adulthood, including ob-gyn and maternity care. They are educated in intensive medical programs and must pass a national examination.
Callahan is accepting new patients and referrals at SH OB/GYN located in the Health Innovation Center, 740 High St., Suite 1004, Williamsport. To schedule an appointment, call 570-321-3300.
