Westwood, NJ - (June 8, 2022) – Pascack Valley Medical Group has announced that Carole Shipman, MSN, CNM, RN, CLC, has joined the practice, adding midwifery to the medical group’s offerings.
Carole Shipman, certified nurse midwife, provides comprehensive care to women throughout their life including preconception, labor and birth, postpartum and beyond. She also offers newborn care in the early postpartum period.
The obstetrics team at Pascack Valley Medical Group is dedicated to providing the best medical care for women of all ages. Because pregnancy is often a time when emotions might run high – particularly for new moms, it is important that their provider is a good fit and respects soon-to-be mom’s feelings, while doing what is safe for mother and baby.
Shipman’s goal is to provide quality, compassionate care to every patient and their family. She works with each patient to ensure a high-level of open communication, and to help the patient determine their pregnancy journey.
“Carole has earned the trust of countless patients throughout their healthcare continuum, and we welcome her to our Pascack Valley family,” said Emily Holliman, chief executive officer at Pascack Valley Medical Center.
Shipman’s journey to becoming a midwife began over 35 years ago. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Ramapo College, in Mahwah, NJ and went on to complete nurse midwifery training and a Masters of Science in Nursing from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, in Newark, NJ. She completed a Midwifery Fellowship at Holy Family Services Birth Center in Weslaco, TX.
Shipman sees patients at 452 Old Hook Road in Emerson, NJ. New patients are welcome and may visit www.pascackmedicalgroup.com to make an appointment or call 201-666-3900. Virtual care and in-person visits are available.
