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.
