With a steadfast loyalty to midwifery, Charlotte Houde Quimby, MSN, CNM, FACNM, joined the YSN faculty, and went on to work at a small private practice where she established Transition to Parenting groups. In 1983, Charlotte was asked to give grand rounds at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire and became a consultant to the Center in developing a midwifery service. Shortly after, she became the Center’s first director. The American College of Nurse-Midwives Global Outreach Division reached out to Charlotte for a nurse-midwife project in Uganda, which she accepted.
