Gail Hart

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 still keeps active with a small community practice. Gail is strongly interested in ways to holistically incorporate evidence-based medical knowledge with traditional midwifery understanding.


Gail will explore with us the following topics:

  • Understanding third stage; preventing, treating and controlling hemorrhage

  • Myths of Obstetrics and Midwifery: examining common practice in light of new research

  • Vaginal Floraculture; the Human Microflora Connection

  • Preeclampsia: What it is, what it ain't and what to do about it
