Biography

Laurie MacLeod, APRN, CNM, is a certified nurse-midwife who says the best part of her job is educating and empowering women. 

Growing up, MacLeod says she was always interested in health and science, and became a nurse, where she gravitated to labor and delivery. “I loved being with women during labor, but I wanted more,” she says. “I wanted to be part of their continuum of care, through all of their life stages.”  

MacLeod went back to school to seek a graduate degree and says that after years in her profession, helping a woman through labor is still an incredible honor. 

She received her midwifery training at the University of New Mexico where she had the opportunity to work with diverse populations including Hispanic and Native American women. She did clinical rotations at a private hospital near the Navajo Nation and then worked in a community hospital with an in-hospital birth center for seven years and a large academic center for seven years. She has more than a decade of experience caring for women during pregnancy, birth, and providing well woman gynecologic care.     

MacLeod joined the Center for Midwifery and Health in 2021. She loves having the opportunity to care for women across the lifespan from childbearing through menopause. She supervises midwifery, medical students, and resident physicians. She says she enjoys sharing the midwifery model of care with learners so that they can be present with women and support their goals for their care. Her care is holistic and evidenced-based. She partners with patients to assist them with reaching their wellness goals.   

Additioally, MacLeod is on the Committee to Support Vaginal Birth at Yale New Haven Hospital.
