Margo Re is a Nurse-Midwife with more than twenty-five years experience as a practitioner and a manager of women’s healthcare. Re is a native New Yorker, and has advanced degrees in from Hunter College and Columbia University, where she studied public health and midwifery. For ten years, she was the nurse in charge of labor and delivery at Lenox Hill, one of New York’s most prestigious hospitals.
Ms. Re now practices midwifery at Elmhurst Hospital, in Queens, NY where she covers gynecological care, family planning, delivery and post partum care. A wide variety of immigrant communities make Queens one of the most diverse places in the world, and Re’s practice reflects this very real melting pot. Her patients speak Spanish, Bengali, Chinese, Hindi, Swahili, and Urdu, so qualified translators are on hand, but Re’s experience and intuition allow her to provide compassionate care that needs no translation.
International healthcare and relief work has figured prominently in Re’s career. After graduating from nursing school, she volunteered for the Peace Corps, and spent two years Liberia, West Africa. She practiced and taught midwifery and basic nursing to local practitioners, hoping that maternal health care would continue to improve even after their mission was completed.
Ms. Re worked with Midwives for Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, providing basic, essential gynecological healthcare to the women in the tent cities of Port Au Prince. She was a key team member for the last two Stitch in Time missions to Friendship, in Bangladesh, providing surgical and post operative care, and supervising the interaction with local health care providers.
