Bayhealth is proud to expand access to care for expectant mothers and newborns in southern Delaware with a new midwife on the Bayhealth Women’s Care, Sussex Campus team. Certified Nurse Midwife Theresa Piper, CNM, joins the four Obstetrician-Gynecologists (OB-GYN) in the practice—Miaohou Xu, MD; Melisa Edler, MD; Roni Dermo, MD; and Reiesha Graham, MD, PhD, FACOG. Piper is currently accepting new patients.

The practice is part of Bayhealth Medical Group, a partnership of highly trained physicians, their clinical staff, and an administrative support team that operates practices throughout central and southern Delaware.

“We’re very excited to welcome our first midwife with Bayhealth Women’s Care. Theresa brings a wealth of experience providing attentive and compassionate care to mothers during and after childbirth,” said Vice President of Physician Services and Clinical Integration Lawrence Ward, MD, MPH, FACP. “With her skills as a midwife, we’re glad to be extending upon the women’s health services available to our community.”

With a more than 10-year career in nursing, Piper worked as a registered nurse in labor and delivery nurse at Bayhealth for most of that time. She earned a Master of Science degree in Nursing/ Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University.

In addition to obstetric services and deliveries, Piper also provides a range of women’s healthcare in the office setting. This includes prenatal care, postpartum support, family planning and contraception counseling, and other education and treatment to keep women well.

Piper is a member of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetrics, and Neonatal Nursing (AWOHNN) and the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM).
