Meet the experts

Carly Bravo, Certified Nurse Midwife

As a Midwife and Nurse Practitioner, Carly recognizes that the transformation to parenthood is much more than simply the birth alone. She enjoys working with families to have an integrated, and empowered pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience. Carly believes in shared decision making, recognizing that while she has formal training in Midwifery, the people she cares for are the experts in their own bodies and their own specific physical, emotional, and informational needs.

Dr. Nazaneen Homaifar, OBGYN

Nazaneen cannot remember a time when she didn't dream of being a doctor. It took some time away from medicine, while in business school, for her to realize that obstetrics and gynecology was her calling. She feels the most impact when she is working to empower women to feel greater ownership over their healthcare decisions.
