Board President: Brooke Hope Lambard Kyle, M.D.
Brooke, originally from Louisiana, is a practicing obstetrician/gynecologist with Women’s Care at their Riverbend location. She enjoys helping women, especially during pregnancy and birth. Postpartum depression is a special interest of hers, and she carries an empathy for those affected with postpartum difficulties. She also enjoys lactation counseling and provides a personal connection, as she breastfed her children until eighteen months.
She has practiced in Miami, Florida, and Melbourne, Australia (where she provided support for a practice of sixty midwives). Her Australian experiences with birth help her bring a worldly perspective on the mother-baby connection that she finds so special.
Brooke is married to a local urologist, and they have three children. As a family, they enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, camping, playing the ukulele, and walking on the Oregon coast. Her days are filled with motherhood, both hers and her patients.

Amelia B. Roth, MD
Amelia practiced as a general pediatrician in Oregon for 5 years and is now completing a 3-year fellowship through OHSU to specialize as a Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician. Amelia has found her true calling in this and very much enjoys working with high needs children and their families, something she has wanted to do since caring for a toddler with Down Syndrome the summer before she started medical school.
Having experienced her own difficult transition to motherhood in 2013, and now working frequently with children affected by untreated perinatal mood disorders, she is both empathetic and passionate about supporting mothers and families through the generally challenging journey of parenthood. Amelia went to medical school in South Carolina where her extended family resides and completed her pediatric residency in 2011 at OHSU’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Her husband John, a native Oregonian, is also a pediatric medical provider in Eugene, and is fluent in Spanish. He is equally passionate about supporting both mothers and their partners through difficult perinatal experiences. They have a strong interest in international relief work and hope to be more involved abroad in the future. They enjoy spending time outside with their young daughter and are passionate about music. John is also a professional DJ and loves to use musical inspiration to energize and uplift others. Amelia is writing a book about her early motherhood experiences, with a hope it might eventually be a source of light for other mothers and families enduring dark days in their parenthood journeys. She is thrilled to be a part of the Well Mama team.
