Tamara Perlman, CNM
I have been caring for women and their families as a Certified Nurse Midwife for the past 15 years. Many years ago, I was introduced to the art of midwifery by working closely with Mexican midwives during a health promotion college internship in Central Mexico. Through these “parteras” and other midwife mentors over the years, I have learned the importance of shared decision-making and the impact a skilled and compassionate midwife can have on a woman’s birth experience. I strive to continue to offer the union of art and science to help women make the right choices for themselves and their families whether during their pregnancy, birth, or women’s health needs. Every pregnancy and birth experience is unique. Here at TrueCare, I feel my role is to help a woman feel safe, supported, and empowered through the process of becoming a mother. When I am not working, I enjoy playing in the ocean waves with my husband and two daughters as well as growing vegetables in my small garden.
