Meet Cassandra Elder

Cassandra has more than 20 years of labor and delivery nursing experience caring for women with both low- and high-risk pregnancies.

Her most recent experience includes working at Capital Area OB/GYN as a certified nurse-midwife, manages and attends the births of low-risk patients. In this role, she has been instrumental in helping bring the midwife program at UNC Rex Healthcare after more than 10 years.

Previously, she worked in a similar capacity at Cape Fear Valley OB/GYN where she also attended the births of select high-risk patients. Prior to that, she worked as a labor and delivery nurse in the Duke Birthing Center at Duke University Hospital for 12 years and at Person Memorial Hospital for 8 years.

Elder is a graduate of East Carolina University’s Midwifery education program, as well as the Danville Regional Medical Center School of Nursing.

Her special interests include continuous labor support, pregnancy education and preparedness, normalizing high-risk pregnancy, patient safety initiatives, breastfeeding support, contraception management, and adolescent gynecology.

Most importantly, she seeks to provide personalized care and support to ensure each of her patients has the opportunity to decide what would be their perfect birth.
