Cosima Lux, MSN, joined University Nurse Midwives in early 2013. After graduating from Yale's MSN program, Lux worked as a nurse midwife in many settings including on reservations throughout the South and North West, in her own private practice in Switzerland and France doing home birth and birth center birth, opening a high school clinic in Taos New Mexico, developing an in hospital birth center in northern California, teaching nutrition at UNM and working at a GYN private practice in New Mexico.
She has many interests and a passion for community and young women's health, that brings her to volunteer as a counselor/practitioner in the juvenile corrections systems, coach girls on the run, and aid in the development of brain imaging research on depressed pregnant adolescents.
Lux has been operating the non-profit One Weeks Wisdom in Haiti, which began as a documentary on compassion in 2009. Since the earthquake, she changed their focus to global relief work, including bringing water to a hospital and a birth center, providing maternity care, consulting on soccer and health programs, and developing nutritional programs based on chicken husbandry in orphanages.
As a passionate educator at UNM, she hopes to develop learning opportunities for students in some of the aforementioned settings.
