Ayisha Byrd, CNM

Midwife, Village Maternity

Laborist Team, Metropolitan Hospital

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona in a naturopathic family. She chose nurse midwifery in order to give a wholistic care personalized to the needs of every patient and family. She believes pregnancy and labor is a rite of passage which guides parents to then raise their child. She is dedicated to giving best evidence based care while remaining insightful to each woman and families individual needs. She feels fortunate to work in a practice that shares such values.

Ayisha has practiced in many different facets of woman and family care over the last fifteen years. She completed her midwifery studies at SUNY Downstate, lives in Brooklyn and is drawn to New York city’s diverse population.
