Therese McMahan, CNM has a life long commitment to women’s health and social change. She has been in practice as a nurse practitioner then a certified nurse midwife for nearly 30 years. As a child she was fascinated by different types of birth-humans and other mammals and continues to delight in catching babies. More importantly caring for women and supporting them in their own self-care has grown in importance.
