Tanya Bailey resides in Brown Summit with her husband and two (almost grown) sons and several furry babies. She loves spending time with her boys!
For over 25 years, she has worked in maternity services, but believes her life’s work started in 2002 when she became a midwife. She is currently involved in local, state, and national organizations to promote midwifery and women’s health. Her favorite professional work has been with the American Midwifery Certification Board serving on the board and as the chair of the exam committee as a content expert.
Her expertise in midwifery certification and regulation led to her selection as a representative for US-MERA, a national umbrella organization of all of the midwifery organizations in the U.S., to address legislative and practice issues involving midwives. Additionally, she has a love of teaching and mentoring that led to the adjunct faculty status at East Carolina University and Frontier University with a continued commitment to supporting and training future midwives.
In our community, she supports and advocates for healthcare choices for women. She is actively involved with local collaborative efforts to improve maternity services and pregnancy access, but she is particularly passionate about her involvement with the Guilford County Coalition on Infant Mortality.
In 2014, she was awarded fellowship into the American College of Nurse-Midwives. This prestigious award recognizes the lifetime achievement and clinical excellence of midwives. She is one of only 250 midwives in the U.S. honored by this title. To learn more about midwifery, please visit www.midwife.org.

"I LOVE MY MIDWIVES ROLITTA, MELANIE & TANYA! They make me feel so empowered to give birth! I have loved my entire experience at Wendover OB/GYN & I'm so glad I made the switch to this practice. The fact that you can offer Nurse Midwives is amazing and I really appreciate it."
