Clinical Director

The Organization 

Located in Bryn Mawr, PA Lifecycle WomanCare is one of the oldest and largest community-based birth centers in the country. Starting in 1978, the organization’s mission was to provide safe and extraordinary care for pregnant persons and their families. With support and guidance from a Board of Directors, the clinical staff currently provides pregnancy, newborn, lactation and well-person gynecology care for clients throughout the greater Philadelphia region.  Mental health services onsite will begin in late 2022.  LWC is fully accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers and licensed by the PA Department of Health.

Over the last four decades, LWC has evolved to meet the changing needs of the community served while holding fast to its mission of providing the highest level of care. Demand for services continues to grow because of LWC’s high quality of care and long-standing positive profile in the region. Revenue is primarily from insurance reimbursement. Additional revenue comes from individual donations and foundation support.

LWC reached 14,000 births in 2022. In 2022, we anticipate serving close to 3000 unique clients and supporting approximately 620 births, both in the birth center and the nearby community hospital. There is a satellite out-patient office in South Philadelphia. Our clinical staff includes midwives, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and lactation consultants. The midwives have clinical practice privileges at Bryn Mawr Hospital.

LWC has a robust lactation program as well as a thriving education department. Educators facilitate parent support groups and teach classes. These activities support LWC’s holistic approach to care which affords families the opportunity to maintain their connection with LWC. Additionally, LWC is a teaching site for midwifery and WHNP students as well as for undergraduate nursing students from local universities.

The organization is now at a critical juncture in its organizational life. We have added a new building for further development of our education program, and added exam rooms to our existing clinical building. With high quality clinical services and a loyal group of supporters, the Board believes it is the right time to expand LWC’s healthcare and educational services to meet the pregnancy and gynecology needs of increasingly diverse populations across different stages of their lives.
