Biography - Laurie MacLeod, CNM

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.” She began her career as a Labor and Delivery nurse at the University of Cincinnati. She completed her graduate program in midwifery at the University of New Mexico. She has extensive experience as a midwife in both community and academic hospitals. After graduating, she joined a large multi-specialty group in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she provided care to a diverse group of women. She precepted students from the University of New Mexico. She was on the Natural Family Birthing Center committee which helped design the new center which offered waterbirth. She spent 6 years attending births, providing antepartum and gynecologic care to both low and high-risk patients in this collaborative practice. She joined the OSU midwives and worked there for 7 years. Along with her other colleagues, she enrolled patients in the first study of outcomes of waterbirth at OSU. The study demonstrated excellent outcomes and the hospital chose to continue the waterbirth option for all midwifery patients after the completion and publishing of the study. She served on the credentialing committee and breastfeeding committee. She oriented new midwives and precepted students from The Ohio State University. She held a faculty appointment in the OSU College of Nursing and OSU College of Medicine. 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 evidence-based.
