Biography - Michelle L. Telfer, CNM

Dr. Telfer has been providing full-scope (well woman care/gyn, family planning, prenatal care, labor & birth and postpartum care) for nearly two decades. She came to midwifery after working in global public health in The Gambia, West Africa where she experienced the importance of access to safe midwifery care in low-resource settings. She is passionate about partnering with pregnant persons and their families to help them achieve their best health, pregnancy, and birth experiences. Everyone deserves compassionate, culturally sensitive, and skilled care throughout their lives. She is privileged to be a part of the Yale Midwifery group that strives to provide this care.
Areas of research and interest include reducing unnecessary primary cesarean sections though promoting physiologic birth and avoiding early labor admissions. She is working with colleagues in the school of medicine and nursing at Yale and at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda to support advanced midwifery education, clinical excellence and the midwifery model of care to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes. She is a lecturer in the midwifery and women's health specialty at the Yale School of Nursing.
