Brattleboro obstetrician continues with focus on women's health

BRATTLEBORO — After helping to bring more than 7,000 babies into the world in her long career of working with area women, Dr. Cheri Ann Brodhurst will be stepping back from the business of birth and will limit her care to gynecology, including general women's healthcare and surgery. She will continue to offer surgery at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital.

Brodhurst, who grew up on the Caribbean island of St. Croix and trained at the State University of New York, began her area practice in 1979 at 387 Canal St. in Brattleboro. She was named Best Doctor in Brattleboro in 2012.

"I look forward to devoting more time to travel and my volunteer and mission work," she said. In addition, Brodhurst is an accomplished musician and woodworker.

"It has been an honor to work for such a brilliant, hardworking and talented doctor who cares so deeply for her patients," said area midwife Jesse Ridgway, CNM. "Cheri Ann is a generous mentor, and I am grateful to be able to continue to learn from her insights and wisdom."

Brattleboro nurse and mother of two Samantha Tobey initially worked alongside Brodhurst at BMH's birth center before choosing her for the birth of her second baby. Tobey witnessed Brodhurt's work first-hand. "There's a broad base of knowledge behind her critical decision making skills and also a notorious 'sense.' She will be greatly missed in OB on a personal and professional level."

Brodhurst finishes her obstetrics work in Brattleboro with a sense of gratitude. "It's been a delight and privilege to serve so many parents and babies these past years. It's been especially fulfilling to participate in the birth experience of second-generation patients. That is, delivering the babies of women whom I delivered."
