Gail Hart graduated from a midwifery training program as a certified practical midwife in 1977. She has held a variety of certifications over the years; she was a certified midwife through the Oregon Midwifery Council and an LDEM in the state of Oregon. She is now semi-retired and no longer maintains her license, but keeps active with a small community practice. Gail is strongly interested in ways to holistically incorporate evidence-based medical knowledge with traditional midwifery understanding.
