Provider Bio

Anna Raffaelli, CNM, is a certified nurse-midwife at Women's Healthcare Associates in Tualatin, Oregon.

From the Provider

“My path to midwifery started at a young age with a strong curiosity for medicine and a desire to serve others. My formal introduction came when I was working as a volunteer doula--and it was love at first sight! The patient-centered, evidence-based approach that midwifery takes is a perfect fit for me and I feel fortunate to work in a role where I can build relationships with women across the lifespan. My goal is for my patients to leave each visit feeling supported and confident in making decisions about their health.”

About the Provider

Anna was drawn to nurse-midwifery by her desire to support women through the powerful and emotional experience of birth. She enjoys the relationships she is able to form with her patients and believes that providing evidence-based care and education empowers women in their health care decision-making. Anna’s clinical interests include obstetric care, family planning and contraceptive counseling, adolescent health care and counseling and screening for sexually transmitted infections.

Prior to becoming a midwife, Anna worked as a nurse and legislative advocate for women’s health issues and is a current member of the Oregon Chapter of the American College of Nurse-Midwives. During her training, she was recognized for her academic achievement as a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and was a recipient of the Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband and young son, cooking, traveling and exploring Portland’s restaurants and breweries.

    This was my first appointment at Women's Healthcare Associates and seeing Dr. Raffaelli. I was nervous, but everyone was very patient with me and friendly. I barely had any wait until I was called back, the nurse who took my vitals was great as was Dr. Raffaelli - so personable and really put me at ease. Overall I had a great experience and look forward to adding Women's Healthcare Associates to my healthcare team.

    The woman with me who inspected me said my cervix was beautiful and i know that's really silly but it made me feel a lot better about myself and my body. She was really good with examining me and making sure I knew what was going on :-)
