Georgia Rose, CNM
I have been in private practice for 14 years. After attending over 1600 deliveries, I am still amazed and in awe of the wisdom of birth and the power of women. I believe each woman has an innate knowledge of how she will give birth because she comes from a long line of successful mothers. My role as a midwife is to help her discover this wisdom and to encourage and support her unique journey to a positive and joyful birth experience.
At Roosevelt Hospital, families may choose the homelike surroundings of the Birthing Center, or the state-of-the-art Labor and Delivery Suite where epidural anesthesia is available. You will receive the same personal, compassionate attention from me in either setting. Additionally, when you give birth at Roosevelt, you can be secure in the knowledge that if unexpected problems arise, you will have immediate access to the hospital’s comprehensive medical services, including the high-level Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
My comfortable private office is at 372 Central Park West, Suite 1D, in Manhattan. This is conveniently located at 97th Street, less than 3 miles north of Roosevelt Hospital, and accessible by public transportation. Please call my office for more information about how I can assist you.
I welcome you to my practice, for I know you and your family will have something special and new to teach me about the profound human endeavor of childbirth.

Elaine Keller Duemig, CNM
Elaine was so thrilled to have joined Central Park Midwifery in December 2013. For the past two and a half years, she worked with a physician in a busy private practice in New Jersey and attended births at Holy Name Medical Center. She is excited to have returned to practice in New York which is where she trained and currently lives.
Becoming a midwife was Elaine's dream for many years. During her journey to midwifery, she earned a bachelor's degree in Women's Studies and a certificate in LGBT studies from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Having never lived anywhere outside of Wisconsin, Elaine chose to move across the country to Connecticut to earn her nursing degree at Quinnipiac University. After a working as a labor and delivery nurse, she followed her dream of becoming a midwife and moved to New York to attend Columbia University to earn her midwifery degree while at the same time working as a nurse. For about 9 months, Elaine worked at Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital as a nurse and loved it! Elaine always wanted to return as a midwife and is so happy to have accomplished that goal! Elaine has worked and trained in many different settings but favors the continuity and close relationships that develop with women and their families while working in a private-practice setting.
"Every birth that I have attended is a special and unique event that I have been honored to be a part of. I believe that the mother is at the center of her birth. I always encourage her to have an active role in her care and I do my best to respect all her preferences and guide her and her partner to have the birth experience they desire and deserve."
