“No matter what, I want to give women the choice of midwifery care in Memphis. I want to empower them to choose their ideal birth experience, and to come alongside them to help them achieve it.”
Breia Loft, MSN, CNM has been a Certified Nurse Midwife for 24 years, the past six at Regional One Health. As a mom herself, she feels a responsibility to other women in her community to provide access to a model of health care that treats patients as individuals and looks at pregnancy and birth as a healthy and natural part of life.
As Breia notes, “I had two wonderful births personally and I wanted to help guide other women to have the same type of great birth experience.”
It all came full circle when, as a nurse midwife, she helped with an extra special delivery several years ago: “One of my most memorable moments was in 2014, when I was honored to ‘catch’ my first granddaughter!” Breia says.
Outside of her professional passion for helping patients build their families, Breia loves spending time with her own family – she has been married for 30 years and has three children, ages 29, 27 and 13 – as well as being active in her church and traveling.
