Midwives

Lisa Gartin, APRN, CNM, CLC, LCCE

Lisa is a transplant to Las Vegas, originally from the Central Valley of California where she supported expecting and parenting families for more than 15 years as a childbirth educator, birth doula and lactation counselor. As her four children grew, she continued her education and made her dream of becoming a nurse midwife a reality.

When caring for women, Lisa believes each woman and family is unique. Her philosophy is that healthcare is a partnership of informed decision-making, where physiologic birth and breastfeeding are the norm. She welcomes women at all stages of life and believes that all women can benefit from midwifery care.

She has experience delivering babies in both a hospital setting and freestanding birth center, leading her to work diligently to bridge the art and science behind midwifery. When she is not in the clinic, Lisa enjoys spending time exploring the natural beauty that surrounds Las Vegas with her husband and two boys that still live at home.
