Alisha C. Morgan, DNP, CNM, APRN, FACMN, has dedicated the last two decades to the care of women and newborns. She has endeavored to increase public awareness of midwifery and women’s health through professional conference presentations, mentoring, and media appearances.
For twelve years, she practiced full scope midwifery in a private, collaborative practice caring for a diverse population. As the Director of Midwifery for the practice, she acted as the midwifery lead and worked closely with the practice owner and practice administrator providing professional advice, contributed to policy planning and the decision-making process. She developed an innovative midwifery outreach program for pregnant teens and young mothers residing in a rural group home allowing them to benefit from midwifery-led care while decreasing school absenteeism.
While in private practice, she was nominated and elected to the Baptist Health Systems Women’s and Newborn Care Service line where she was the sole midwifery representative and the only non-physician voting member of a service line encompassing nine Baptist Health hospitals in Kentucky and Indiana.
In 2022, she and a CNM colleague integrated midwifery at a rural regional hospital in southern Kentucky. She developed evidence-based protocols for the hospital and worked closely with hospital administration to update hospital bylaws thus increasing access to midwifery care and decreasing physician oversight.
