Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital is pleased to announce that Sarit Shatken-Stern has joined the staff of the Women’s Wellness Center. She is a board certified nurse midwife.
Prior to coming to NVRH, Sarit practiced midwifery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, where she was exposed to an array of labor issues.
Sarit grew up in Mendham, NJ. She attended Bard College, receiving a BA in Human Rights in 2005. At Case Western Reserve University, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, she graduated from the nursing program in 2007, and worked as a labor and delivery nurse in Cleveland for a year and a half. She earned her Master’s of Science degree in midwifery from the Columbia University School of Nursing in 2010.
Sarit finds midwifery “very rewarding work” and a natural fit. She is very pleased to be at NVRH. “It’s a great next step for me. NVRH has a very strong midwifery program, and they offer choices to mothers, from natural childbirth to epidurals and other effective pain management. I deeply appreciate their strong commitment to breastfeeding. Additionally, I can’t say enough about the nursing staff – they are very, very good. This is an impressive culture for me to be in, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
Dr. Elaine Paul, Medical Director of Women’s Wellness Center said of Sarit’s arrival, “Sarit is delightful. Her work at a big city medical center was wonderful training and I know she’s happy to be here and enthusiastic about NVRH.”
Sarit’s husband, Adam Stern, MD is a cardiology fellow at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. They both appreciate living and working in the area, and plan to take advantage of snowboarding when the snow flies! In her spare time, Sarit reads and writes, dabbles in art, cooks and bakes.
