Leah Marinelli - R.N., C.N.M., N.P.
Leah Marinelli received her Nursing Degree at Rockland Community College, her Bachelor of Science in Women’s Health at SUNY Empire State College, a Master of Science in Midwifery from Downstate University Medical Center, and her certificate degree in Nurse-Midwifery from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
She has 16 years experience in homebirth as a homebirth midwife and many more years as an assistant homebirth midwife, childbirth educator and labor support doula. She brings a wealth of homebirth expertise together with clinical hospital training, using both alternative and conventional healing arts in caring for women throughout their life cycle. Leah has been blessed to be the proud mother of six children, four born at home and two at birth centers.
Having been inspired by her own homebirth in 1983, Leah began training in homebirth as an assistant midwife in New York, New Jersey, and later Israel. Now, as a Certified Nurse Midwife, Leah has dedicated her life to providing safe, responsible and compassionate care to women, just as was provided to her in her 6 births.
