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 reservations throughout the South and Northwest, in her own private practice in Switzerland and France doing home 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, she hopes to develop learning opportunities for students in some of the aforementioned settings.
