One of the most common ways people end up on my blog is after they Google “Diane Tandy.” Diane is a Catholic certified nurse midwife who delivered my last two babies and helped to give me the most beautiful birth experiences. (The picture above is from my most recent birth this past April.)
I’ve been meaning to give an update on Diane’s contact information so that other women who are lucky enough to be in the Atlanta area might be able to use her services. Diane is now with Gifts of Grace, a Christian-based OB/GYN practice. In fact, I saw her in her new office just this week.
Diane is a compassionate and skilled health professional. But she is so much more. She not only helps deliver “gifts of grace,” but she herself is a gift to women, babies, and families. She is also a woman of faith and a courageous defender of the inviolability of human life.
Diane has over 20 years of midwifery experience and for the past seven years, she has been reaching out to women in crisis pregnancies, providing free ultrasounds, reduced prenatal care, and sometimes even a place to call home by opening her door to girls who have nowhere to turn. Above all, Diane gives hope to women who feel hopeless. In doing so, she saves countless lives.
According to Diane, midwifery didn’t always top her career list. “I wanted to go into the medical field so I could look after elderly people, but every time I tried to go into geriatrics, I’d be pulled back into OB,” says Diane, who estimates she’s delivered more than 10,000 babies since she started practicing in 1982. “I didn’t choose midwifery. God chose for me.” (This is an excerpt from an article I wrote for Canticle called “Diane Tandy’s Special Deliveries.” Read the rest here. Please also consider reading Mary Elizabeth’s birth story to get a glimpse into the kind of birth experience Diane helps give families.)
Here’s Diane’s new practice information:
