Martyn says that her background in movement and dance piqued her interest in nursing as a career. “I have always been interested in human bodies, in how they work and move. “As a dancer I have seen how humans have an innate sense of what is good and right in their own bodies. I was drawn to being a midwife because I get to help my patients find that in themselves, pregnant or not, and help them advocate for their own bodies.”

Brattleboro OB/GYN, a member of the BMH Medical Group, is a group of obstetrician-gynecologists and certified nurse-midwives who practice collaboratively to provide comprehensive care in partnership with their patients. In addition to advanced infertility treatments, their gynecological services include preventive care for all ages, from adolescence to menopause.

Martyn, whose interests include yoga and hiking, feels that her history in the community will be serve her well. “I’m about as local as they come—I was born at BMH myself! I think knowing and caring about this community is a great asset as a midwife,” She says.

Brattleboro OB/GYN is located on the first floor of the Gannett Building. New patients can make appointments by calling 844-258-8777.
