Christina Sebestyen, MD – owner of OBGYN North – has championed the cause of women’s choice in birth options in Austin since arriving here in 2006.
A mother of two sons, she chose to birth naturally with a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) in a New Hampshire hospital, using hypnobirthing for strength and focus.
She moved to Texas with her husband James who was stationed at Lackland Air Force Base, and quickly fell in love with Austin.
As a long-standing advocate for women both in clinical practice and on Capitol Hill, she was surprised by the lack of hospital-based midwifery and alarming c/section rates here.
She completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham & Women’s / Massachusetts General Hospitals combined program, where CNMs practiced side-by-side with physicians.
She earned her Bachelors Degree Cum Laude in ecology and evolutionary biology from Princeton University and her medical degree from The University of Pennsylvania, graduating with admission to the honor society Alpha Omega Alpha.
She worked intensively with North Austin Medical Center to allow CNMs to be credentialed and successfully accomplished this in August 2008.
