Martha Linder MS CNM is a lifelong resident of the Finger Lakes, and currently lives with her husband and children in Marietta NY, in her childhood home. Her original intentions when heading to college were to pursue veterinary science, but a detour into marriage and motherhood resulted in a changed path into healthcare and ultimately the nursing field. As a “nurse in training” at Crouse Hospital School of Nursing, Martha realized her interest peaked with maternal child nursing; specifically labor and delivery, in part due to her mother’s career as an L&D nurse, of which she loved to hear the stories. This resulted in a greater than 20 year career as a labor and delivery nurse at the former Community General Hospital, encompassing multiple roles and impacting her pursuit of higher education.
Following graduation in 2005 from Upstate Medical University with a baccalaureate degree in nursing, her passion for supporting women during one of their most vulnerable periods led Martha to pursue a midwifery degree. Martha had worked with a large group of CNM’s in her L&D nursing role and realized that becoming a midwife would equip her with the tools to greatly impact women and families during pregnancy and birth.
A graduate of Stony Brook University in 2010 with a Master’s Degree in Nursing: Midwifery and national certification by the American Midwifery Certification Board, Martha began her midwife career at Upstate Medical University, Regional Perinatal Center. After two plus years of immersion in the world of high risk pregnancies, Martha decided to pursue care of women across the lifespan and become a partner in health practice for women of all ages. This led to her joining Auburn OB/Gyn in 2013, the very practice where her midwife training had been done!
When not caring for the women and families she serves, Martha enjoys family time, her children’s sporting events, traveling, reading and gardening.
