Biography

Dolores J. Polito received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1992 and a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

Personal statement

I believe women and families should be treated as I would want myself or one of my daughters to be treated. Pregnancy and birth are monumental life events for a family, and I am an advocate for family-centered care. I decided to become a certified nurse midwife many years ago after caring for women in labor because I wanted to be a part of their greater journey.

Personally, when I'm not in Lexington, I can be found in my cabin in the Red River Gorge, where I enjoy hiking and quilting. My family is most important to me outside of my midwifery practice, and my three children are my greatest achievements .
