Bridget specializes in midwifery and gynecological care for women of all ages. She considers it an honor to assist families through some of the most transformative and exhilarating times of their lives.
Bridget encourages women to be fully engaged in their health care choices, and she tailors each birth experience to respect a woman’s individuality and preferences. She believes that utilizing evidence based practice and preparing women for birth - through listening and education - results in the best outcomes. She takes particular interest in contraception and empowering women to take ownership of their reproductive health.
After completing her midwifery education at Columbia University, Bridget practiced for several years at a bustling New York City hospital, where she served women of diverse backgrounds from all over the world. More recently, Bridget worked in a private practice setting and attended births at a community hospital’s birth center in New York’s Hudson Valley.
Bridget was drawn to OHSU by the opportunities to help train future midwives, and for her and her husband to live in Portland and raise their sons in a culturally vibrant environment. Her interests include design, travel, and food.Read more

I really like that Bridget provides a balanced approach to care. I feel that she is giving me honest information when I have a question and wants to empower and educate patients so they can make decisions they are comfortable with.

They are extremely helpful & kind! Possibly emailing us materials to read before class & then us discussing the material may allow for a better discussion time, but the instructor & her “trainee” are wonderful!

She's very knowledgeable, supportive, and encouraging.

Had a great experience. She listened, asked questions, and gave great (and honest) feedback when I had questions for her.
- Dec 28, 2018
Bridget was very friendly but sometimes made me feel a bit rushed in her desire to be efficient. Overall, she listened to my concerns and was very friendly, but it was hard to build a connection since I felt the conversation to be a bit rushed.

The appointment was extremely timely, easy, relaxed. Brigit gave me ample opportunity to ask questions and I didn't feel rushed - I just also didn't have much to ask so it was quick and simple!

Bridget has been a great provider both during and after my pregnancy. She has made sure that she's done what's best for me and for my son and for our care.

Brigit is very personable and clearly passionate about her work. She involved my husband in the appointment and got him so excited about seeing the baby on sonogram. She gives helpful advice but does not lecture.

This provider was very open-minded, she made me feel very comfortable throughout the pap smear, and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends because of the care provided.
- Aug 10, 2018
Left plenty of time for my concerns and addressed each one.
- Aug 10, 2018
She did not make me feel confident in my ability to carry through on a healthy pregnancy. She kept calling me abnormal. It was not a helpful visit at all.
- Jul 27, 2018
She was pleasant, she seemed to rush the appt. I did have a question but I never got the opportunity to address it.
- Jul 26, 2018
She wasn't as down to earth as I would like my midwife to be. It felt like I was listening to an OB/GYN instead of a nurturing midwife. She also seemed very short with people and Likes to quickly move on from your concerns.
- Jul 21, 2018
I always enjoy seeing Bridget. She is personable, knowledgable, and I trust her judgement and opinions.
- Jul 11, 2018
Bridget was really kind and very knowledgeable *
- Jul 10, 2018
I was very hesitant in having a hospital birth. I came in with fears that my beliefs and wishes for my birth and health of myself and baby wouldn?t be respected, but was blown away with how much was put back into my hands. I left my appointment feeling like a big weight had been lifted off my shoulders.

I saw 2 providers on July 5th. The nurse midwife who runs my prenatal group, Bridgett Lee, and a birth class instructor, Jennifer Fisher. Both are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
- Apr 22, 2018
Just so rushed. She addressed my issues but at such a pace that I was left not remembering everything we talked about. just was rushed overall which impacted how much I felt listened to.
- Feb 28, 2018
Already mentioned in my previous comment, but Bridget is wonderful. She manages to be very thorough in just the few minutes that we have individually to meet with her in the group prenatal class. I always feel well cared for and I would be thrilled to have her attend my birth! She makes me feel confident and assured and I know I can trust her.
- Feb 08, 2018
My experience was alright overall but the care provider would frequently interrupt and while she said OHSU supports women in their birth decision she did not ever ask me specifically how I wanted my birth experience to be. that would have saved her a lot of time. birth experience to go

Best experience I've had for an annual ever. There were a few times when I could tell she was keeping an eye on the time and had to push through our conversation, but my guess is that has to happen to keep wait times down. We covered everything I wanted to, and she set me up with a follow-up appointment to discuss certain items in greater depth. I'm so happy to have found the Center for Women's Health at OHSU.
- Jan 09, 2018
The provider is very respectful, courteous and shows concern for my questions. I do sometimes feel like I need to do my own research and be informed about the issues we are discussing as I'm not sure she will always share all the information that I feel is relevant and needed for me to make informed decisions. (I do recognize that I may want more information and a more thorough understanding before making a decision than some might!)

Bridgette Lee helped to empower me through pregnancy and birthing by providing me information and encouraging me. She was wonderful!
