North Carolina OB/GYN and Midwifery
I chose to become a physician due to a positive experience with a physician when I was 15 years old. I had an accident which resulted in the need for orthopedic care. The emergency room (ER) physician who cared for me was sensitive to my being frightened and alone (my parents were both working and it took a while for them to get to the hospital). The ER doc was kind and explained things to me as they happened. He even took the time to tell me what he was looking for on X-ray and how my treatment would proceed. Being from a small town, I had never interacted with a physician on more than a very superficial level. His kindness and skill left me in awe. It was at that moment that I decided I would become a physician. I very much believe in a partnering approach to patient care. I will always provide the patient with options to manage a condition. I firmly believe that patients have the best outcomes when they are empowered in their medical care. Safe treatments and alternatives should always be discussed, and questions answered plainly and frankly. I believe that there is never a bad question. I like to connect with my patients on a personal level-I see them as friends more than acquaintances. I am at the point in my career where I often treat young women that I delivered as babies for gynecologic issues. It is highly gratifying knowing that I have developed a level of trust with all OBGYN services that continues through generations of women. I enjoy all aspects of obstetric and gynecologic care. I offer obstetric care and delivery for most patients including twins and patients with conditions such as hypertension and gestational diabetes. I also offer a full range of medical and surgical options for the treatment of heavy menstrual cycles, fibroids, and ovarian cysts.
Outside of work, I am an avid sports fan, particularly of college football. I love to read and listen to music. I can often be found working in my yard with my earbuds in on the weekends.

Bridget Tobin, MD
I have been passionate about reproductive health for as long as I can remember, going at least as far back as when, as soon as I learned myself, I explained to everyone in my first grade class where babies come from. I was certain I would become an Ob/Gyn from the first day of medical school, and I consider it a privilege to contribute to some of the most significant aspects of a woman’s life. No other specialty provides the opportunity to do that as much as obstetrics and gynecology.
The range of care I can provide as an Ob/Gyn makes every day exciting to me. I am particularly passionate about high and low risk obstetrics, contraception counseling, and minimally invasive surgery. It is especially rewarding to me to help you understand your reproductive health and come to decisions together about the best options for you.
Outside of the office, I enjoy puzzles, playing board and video games, and spending time with my husband and children. I also love to sing, travel, cook, and bake.
Caroline Summers, DO
I am a native of Raleigh, NC. It is an honor and privilege to serve the community that I was born and raised in. I have always had an interest in medicine, but my passion for OB/GYN was piqued when I volunteered as an EMT with Cary Area EMS. The obstetric patients were always my favorite population to care for. My undergraduate and graduate studies in nutrition and health at NC State University further fueled my interest in women’s health through various stages of life. I believe in treating the whole person rather than just their current physical ailment. I care for my patients the way I hope my loved ones are cared for when they seek medical care. I strive to ensure that patients are thoroughly informed of their medical diagnoses and involved in decision making for their treatment.
I provide full scope obstetric and gynecologic care. I perform prenatal care and deliveries for a wide breadth of high risk obstetric patients, including those with hypertensive disorders and gestational diabetes. I have a particular interest in how nutrition impacts a woman’s health. I also provide medical and surgical management of various gynecologic conditions, including irregular or heavy periods, ovarian cysts, and fibroids.
I am thrilled to join the North Carolina OB/GYN and Midwifery family, and I am eager to continue caring for women through their reproductive years and beyond, for years to come.
Outside of work, I enjoy cheering on the NC State Wolfpack, Jazzercise, reading, and spending time with my husband and puppy.

Chrisanne Roach, MD
I have had so many experiences as a child and young adult that led me to realize that I wanted to dedicate my life to educating, empowering and mentoring women to become the best versions of themselves. This passion was born out of admiration for my mother’s strength and ability to uplift and encourage everyone around her. Thus, once I decided to pursue a career in medicine, I was immediately attracted to the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology. This multifaceted specialty encompasses my love for medicine, women’s wellness, and surgery.
My devotion to the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology is solidified daily, as I cherish the unique relationships that I develop with my patients. Being a wife, mother, sister, and friend has made me more aware of the many hats women wear daily; as well as how these various roles can impact our spiritual, physical, and mental health. I thus strive to ensure that I take the time to understand my patient’s needs, provide education and address any concerns they may have. I firmly believe in providing patient centered care and developing treatment plans based on shared decision making. My aim is to continually create a safe space for women to feel empowered to make well informed decisions that will allow them to achieve optimal health and wellness.
I enjoy providing the full scope of OBGYN care which includes low and high-risk obstetric care, preventative medicine, treatment of menstrual disorders and other benign gynecologic conditions. I also have a special interest in minimally invasive surgery and family planning.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, dancing, and cooking. I also enjoy event planning and interior decorating.

Lauren Hess, CNM
I began my journey to midwifery while serving in the Air Force as a labor and delivery nurse. I was captivated by the way the midwives cared for their patients and I loved learning from them. After separating from the Air Force, my husband and I moved to Raleigh, NC and added our loveable black lab to our family followed by two amazing daughters. While working as a labor and delivery nurse, I earned my Master’s degree from East Carolina University and became a Certified Nurse-Midwife. I am passionate about physiologic birth, shared-decision making and supporting families through pregnancy, labor, birth, and throughout the lifespan. My desire is that each woman feels supported and empowered through her pregnancy and birth. I am thrilled to be working with a collaborative team of incredible physicians and midwives. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family in the great outdoors, traveling to new places, and experiencing other cultures around the world. On a more consistent basis I can be found being silly with our girls, getting in some exercise with strength training, drinking good coffee, and enjoying the next delicious meal my husband creates in the kitchen.

Tianna Greene, CNM
Tianna was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and family is everything to her. She along with her husband and two boys, Carter and Evan recently relocated to North Carolina in November 2020 from New Jersey. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing through Drexel University’s Accelerated BSN program in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before returning to school to pursue her Master of Science in Nursing from Frontier Nursing University’s Nurse Midwifery Program in 2016.
Tianna likes to say that she was destined to be a Midwife from birth, since midwifery has been a part of her life from a very young age. Her mother has been practicing as a Midwife for over 25 years and her grandmother also worked as a midwife in her home country of Guyana before moving to the states.
Tianna was drawn to the field of midwifery because of her passion for the advocacy of women’s rights, her love for education, and her desire to reduce the unfortunate health care disparities amongst women and babies of color.
When she is not providing respectful, individualized, and compassionate care, she loves spending her time with her family. She especially enjoys exploring the outdoors with her boys, traveling while immersing herself into new cultures, cooking delicious meals, and family dance parties.
Stacie Walker, CNM, MSN
Stacie relocated from the harsh winters of Chicago, Illinois to North Carolina in 2008. A self described “military brat” of her father that retired in the Air Force and her mother who left the workforce to raise her and her siblings, they spent a great deal of time traveling. Her husband Maurice, also served in the armed forces, in the Army, and now as an Officer in the Navy. Stacie lives with her husband Maurice and their son Jalen. Stacie’s family would not be complete without mentioning her fur baby, Gunner, her very spoiled labradoodle. In addition to her love of family Stacie is a diehard Tarheel fan, particularly Tarheel basketball. Stacie’s love of the sport has been passed on to her youngest son Jalen, who is quite the basketball player. Stacie admits to being a “basketball mom” and “coach”. She also enjoys singing.
Stacie began her career in women’s health over 10 years ago where she fell in love with labor and delivery while working at the Duke Birthing Center, Durham, NC. The Duke Birthing Center is a high risk tertiary labor and delivery unit which afforded her the opportunity to connect and learn from many of the greatest physicians and midwives in the world of obstetrics. She also served as a clinical instructor for the Duke University School of Nursing. It was during this time she saw the value of collaborative care between physicians and midwives, as well as student learners. The unique insights of midwives as experts in normal labor and birth was key to a balanced approach to obstetric care in an academic setting. These experiences were instrumental in molding her delivery of care to ensure ALL women, no matter their health status, received focused-centered care that normalized their hospital stay. She knew becoming a certified nurse midwife would enable her to reach even more women. Stacie completed her education and training at both George Washington University and Shenandoah University. She earned a Master of Science in Nursing, Nurse Midwifery degree. She completed her undergraduate degree from the University of NC, Charlotte. Prior to joining Raleigh Midwifery Stacie worked as a full scope certified nurse midwife at Maria Parham, Duke LifePoint in Oxford, NC. Stacie plans to bring her experience and love of centering pregnancy care, diabetes education and continuous bedside labor support to the women that are served at Raleigh Midwifery.
