Midwife Dinah Augustin

Patient Reviews

 

Dinah Augustin is a Haitian- American who is originally from Massachusetts. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and minored in Biology at Salem State University. During her service as a nurse she was captured by the insufficient knowledge women possessed regarding their body. It behooved her to search for an alternative way that she can assist. Dinah later attended New York University to pursue her passion and become a Certified Nurse- Midwife. She is hoping that she can inspire women to view their body as sacred and care for it by making informed decisions.
