Barb Torres, CNM
Barb Torres, CNM, has been with Sixteenth Street for 13 years. She loves this place for its ability to provide outstanding care to a vulnerable population. Barb believes that healthcare is a basic human right and providing healthcare is nothing less than a privilege. Doing this work with compassion and treating everyone equally is not only her responsibility, but it is what gives Barb purpose.
Barb’s work at the clinic is very special to her. She notes that, apart from the knowledge, experience and expertise she and the team of midwives at the clinic have, they provide the humblest of care. Barb loves everything about this work. She is at her best when she is seated quietly with a woman in labor, rubbing her back or holding her hand, with a watchful eye to be sure everything is progressing as nature intended.
“The clinic has been like home for me over these past 13 years. It is where I learned to be a midwife from an amazing group of women, and where I have mastered my skills and served my patients ever since. For that I am eternally grateful.”
