Meet Melissa Aycox, CNM, of Greystone OB/Gyn located in Conyers and Covington Georgia.

"I grew up in Covington, Georgia, and have been a part of Greystone OB/Gyn since becoming a midwife in 2003. My family goes back at least four generations in this area. Many people knew my grandfather, who owned McElreath's Garage on Highway 36. I am blessed to watch women transition from womanhood to motherhood every day and enjoy the awesome responsibility of being involved as women and their families and lives are changed forever. I have known some of my patients outside of work. Seeing some of the children I have delivered grow up, attend school and even play with my own girls is a real joy!"

"My compassion and desire to help others led me to become a certified nurse-midwife. Every day it remains a miracle to welcome babies into the world! We help women through one of their most important events and give them someone to talk to on a day to day basis. The patients are grateful and thankful, and many have been with me for years. I've delivered three or four babies for some women! I am easy to talk to, open minded and non-judgmental and I am honored to be part of such a special time in people's lives. As a nurse-midwife, I try to be sensitive to each patient's needs and concerns. I believe in open communication to make every visit an opportunity for patients to participate in their prenatal care. My vision is to provide outstanding medical care with a personal touch."

Melissa obtained a Master of Science in Midwifery and Family Practice at Emory University in Atlanta and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Emory. She is certified by and is a member of the American College of Nurse Midwives.

She and her husband Chris have two daughters, Esme and Elin. They enjoy traveling and have gone snowmobiling in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, scuba diving in Tahiti, and beach combing in the Caribbean and Hawaii.
