Introducing Mary Di Masi, CNM to Capital Women’s Division 67 — Ballston

Midwives are known to have great patient outcomes.

Practices incorporating Certified Nurse-Midwives or CNMs can boast a lower overall cesarean section rate, lower episiotomy rates and higher breast-feeding rates. This type of practice, where physicians and CNMs work together to meet patient needs, is known as a collaborative care practice.

This November it was decided that our division would become a collaborative care practice. This was in response to patients stated desires to have readily available midwifery care and a desire to provide the highest quality of care for all patients.

Mary Di Masi practiced as a Registered Nurse and then went on to earn her graduate degree in Nursing with a focus on midwifery studies. This extended education and subsequent board certification allows her to work with low-risk pregnancies independently and can allow her to co-manage higher risk pregnancies alongside our physicians.

What most people don’t realize is that CNMs can also take care of many of your gynecological needs. From the onset of puberty through menopause, CNMs have the skills and education to take care of patients at every step of their journey.

Mary’s prior experience as a Forensic Nurse Examiner means she has great skills and sensitivity, including gentle pelvic exams. As a CNM her passion includes helping families grow as they want to, by helping them find the contraceptive method that works best for them.

Shared decision making with her patients is a key part of her practice, meaning she strives to find the unique care plan to meet your individual needs.

Another perk of being cared for in a collaborative practice means that with Mary as your care provider, should you develop a high-risk complication or need surgical expertise, your care remains seamlessly within our division as you will see one of our Board-Certified Physicians.

Mary even has early morning appointments to accommodate your busy life and work schedule.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
