New midwife at ThedaCare in Berlin focuses on women’s health
Recently ThedaCare in Berlin added Midwife Shelly Weisheipl, RN, MSN, CNM to its medical staff. She is at home at Berlin and is at ease in her role in women’s healthcare because she previously worked as a registered nurse in the Berlin Memorial Hospital obstetrics and birth care unit.
Women’s heath has always been close to Weisheipl’s heart. She loves nurturing, educating and treating women with the many issues they face. This could include birth control, pregnancy, incontinence, depression, anxiety and more. Women are complex and Weisheipl loves her practice as it allows her to spend quality time with her patients. Her biggest reward is empowering women.
Weisheipl was the in the first class that graduated from the two-year midwifery program at Marquette University in 1995. Since that time she has held numerous positions in the Fox Valley and spent the past year at Berlin Hospital as a labor and delivery nurse. “Working with the doctors and nurses at Berlin prompted me to open my practice here. I saw physicians and nurses when they were delivering at 3 a.m. or anytime and they were always pleasant to work with. I wanted to be a part of the team and be with the mothers from their first exam through labor and delivery,” she said.
