Olympic Medical Center welcomed Maggie Gardner, a certified nurse-midwife, to the Olympic Medical Physicians Women’s Health team recently.
Gardner joined the clinic this fall and will provide women’s health and midwifery services to patients on the Olympic Peninsula.
Gardner became a certified nurse-midwife in 2013 after earning a master’s of science degree in nursing at Frontier Nursing University in Hyden, Ky. She went on to receive a graduate certificate in public health from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minn., in 2020.
Gardner grew up in Vermont and worked in community hospitals in her home state for much of her midwifery career.
She chose to relocate to the Olympic Peninsula to enjoy the mountains and trees that she loves in Vermont in a milder climate.
“When I first visited Port Angeles, I instantly felt like I could see myself living here and being a part of the community,” Gardner said. “I love bumping into people whose babies I’ve caught when I’m in the grocery store, it’s what makes living and working in a small community great!”
OMP’s Women’s Health Clinic team provides well-woman care, contraception and pregnancy and postpartum care. Gardner will see patients at the OMP Women’s health clinics in Sequim and Port Angeles.
