Margaret Buxton. CNM.

Margaret Buxton, CNM, DNP, is a Certified Nurse Midwife and graduate of the Vanderbilt Midwifery Program. She’s the Clinical Director of the Nashville Baby+Company birth center, a freestanding birth center in collaboration with Vanderbilt Health.

Margaret is a graduate of the Vanderbilt Midwifery Program. Her experience includes both full scope midwifery care and education. After spending the first two years of her career working on the Kellogg Birth Center Grant and as a CNM at the East End Birth Center in Nashville, she then taught for two years at the University of Washington in Seattle in the graduate and undergraduate Maternity Nursing specialty. In 2003, she joined the Vanderbilt Nurse Midwives and worked in both teaching at the Vanderbilt School of Nursing and practice at West End Women’s Health Center, co-directing the practice from 2011 to 2014.

Awards and degrees include the 2010 ACNM Foundation’s Excellence in Teaching Award and the PRC Award for Clinical Excellence and Patient Satisfaction. In 2014 she received her doctorate from the University of Alabama Birmingham with a focus on prevention of cesarean birth and birth center care.

She is a passionate advocate of the birth center model of care—which puts women and their families first. This evidence-based, high-value approach to maternity care extends the range of options available for clients and provides a caring environment conducive to a safe, healthy birth. She is married and the mother of four children, Lila, Ava, Mack and Bodie.
