Meet the Midwives
Little Company of Mary Hospital's Family Birth Center encourages women to choose whatever birthing method option they're comfortable with. For some women, this may include the care of a midwife.
Little Company of Mary is proud to offer two Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) who specialize in personalized and tailored care to the specific needs of mom. Mary Kay Burke, APN, CNM, WHNP has been with LCMH since the midwifery program launched in 2010. Mara Arakelian, CNM joined the program at LCMH in 2017. Mary Kay and Mara work closely with moms to create unique and personalized birthing plans for each patient.
Midwives know that each woman has unique health care needs and requires individual attention. Midwives spend time by a woman's side in labor, supporting her and watching for any health concerns. They care for women during labor and delivery, as well as provide various types of healthcare for women including prenatal, postpartum, and routine gynecological services.
Mary Kay Burke and Mara Arakelian collaborate with Little Company of Mary Hospital Women's Healthcare Affiliates board-certified physicians to offer personalized birthing services. To schedule a FREE meet-and-greet with Mary Kay and Mara or for a tour of our facilities, please call 708.636.9205.
