No matter where you are in your reproductive health journey, Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health Lebanon has got you covered. Our team of four Certified Nurse Midwives and four OB-GYNs empowers you to make your own informed healthcare decisions by supporting you, educating you, and standing by your side at every visit.
“We offer a full range of primary health care services for patients of all ages – from adolescence to post-menopause,” said Heather Potts, Certified Nurse Midwife. “Our team is well-versed in primary care, family planning, preconception care, gynecological care, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Our midwife team works closely with our physician colleagues to provide the best service for you and your family.”
Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health Lebanon midwives are obstetric and gynecological healthcare providers that offer intimate and personalized care for our patients. All of our midwives have a background in nursing, which ensures effective and safe care for clients. Our Certified Nurse Midwives are experts at assessing, diagnosing, and treating a diverse range of healthcare conditions. Mothers walk away from their appointments with our team feeling heard, understood, and connected to their healthcare providers. Here, you will know your care team by name – and they will know you.
Our midwife team keeps close watch over you during the duration of your pregnancy and birth, offering guidance and a hand to hold. “Nothing is more rewarding to us than delivering your baby safe and sound,” said Megan Donohue, MSN, Certified Nurse Midwife. “Being the first one to introduce parents to their baby is worth its weight in gold. We laugh and cry alongside our patients – it is this connection that keeps us coming back for more.”
At Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health Lebanon, we ensure you will have a true understanding of your care plan, while also giving you a voice to alter the plan to fit your needs and desires. Our midwives present all options to you, discussing risks and benefits openly and honestly. These conversations start in the clinic, but they don’t stop there. These discussions continue throughout your pregnancy and postpartum period, because we want you to have a say.
If you are a higher-risk patient, we are able to expedite your care to any specialist in the Vanderbilt Health system, ensuring you receive the intimate care that is expected at a private practice, while also offering the resources that come along with a large academic institution. Our patients will always have a comprehensive team supporting them through their entire birth, pregnancy and postpartum process. We’re the best of both worlds.
The majority of our women’s health team is local to Wilson County – we are members of your community who care for you like family. The newest addition to the team will be Zoe Belkin, MD. In fall 2021, Dr. Belkin will be the first female OB-GYN to join Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health Lebanon.
“I am thrilled to be joining the team as the first female OB-GYN at Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health Lebanon,” Dr. Belkin said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to provide care for women of Wilson County through all life stages – including pregnancy, postpartum, non-surgical and surgical gynecological care. I strive to improve my patients’ health through evidenced-based care, careful listening, and individualized attention. I am a strong advocate for my patients, and I hope to empower them to feel in charge of their own health.”
