Rome Health Prenatal Care welcomes nurse practitioner

Marguerite Shifrin

Rome Health Prenatal Care welcomes women’s health nurse practitioner Marguerite Shifrin to its team.    

The board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner provides the full scope of gynecologic and obstetric care to women in the community.

“I am excited about growing the services available at the prenatal center to add preconception, contraception and family planning, breastfeeding care, and general gynecologic care to our robust obstetric program,” Shifrin said.

As a graduate of Duke University School of Nursing, excellence in rural and underserved medicine is Shifrin’s calling. 

Prior to her graduate degree, she worked in a variety of capacities as a nurse in women’s health, starting in 2003 with immersion in a free standing birth center and spending the next two decades committed to women’s health in a variety of roles including birth and lactation support.

Shifrin believes women’s health is foundational to the wellness of the population at large, “ensuring access to quality preconception, pregnancy, and preventive care for women is critical to maintaining our community’s health.”
