Nikole Gettings, CNM, has been providing comprehensive reproductive health services in the heart of Midtown Memphis for 10 years. She has a master's in Nursing from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing. She is a Certified Nurse Midwife [CNM] with board certification from American College of Nurse Midwives. Ms. Gettings believes that part of holistic care includes care of our reproductive and sexual health. She believes that for so many of us, stigma, shame, lack of resources and lack of education result in sexual health decisions that negatively impact our lives and communities. She believes that together we can overcome these barriers. Ms. Gettings believes combining education, clinical services and support networks is the way that individuals, couples, families and communities can develop together safe, supportive reproductive and sexual health practices. Clinically, she offers a unique set of sub-specialty skills within the field of gynecology and reproductive health that are not widely available in the Memphis and Shelby County area including care for individuals who identify as transgender, same sex fertility assistance, fertility evaluations for men and women, men's reproductive health services, adolescent reproductive health, HIV prevention including PREP and PEP, reproductive health for HIV+ and families of HIV +. She is also a speaker and educator providing lectures across a broad array of reproductive and sexual health specialties to other clinicians across the United States.
