SPRINGFIELD — The providers and staff of Baystate Ob/Gyn Group Inc. recently welcomed new practitioners to the practice, offering increased appointment availability in its Springfield and new Longmeadow offices.

Dr. Elizabeth Otmaskin joined Baystate Ob/Gyn Group from her post-doctoral training at Baystate Medical Center, learning and gaining experience alongside the practice’s own physicians and certified nurse midwives. Her practice of full-scope obstetrics and gynecology includes a clinical interest in laparoscopic and vaginal surgery, preventive women’s healthcare, and management of both routine and complex gynecologic and obstetric problems. She participated in numerous research projects and received prestigious honors during her education and residency, including awards related to clinical excellence in obstetrics and female pelvic/reconstructive surgery, as well as recognition for academic excellence, teaching, and community service.

Three new certified nurse midwives — Sage Ungerleider, Aliza Rosenstein, and Karrian Benejan — have joined the midwifery department of Baystate Ob/Gyn Group, offering routine pregnancy and gynecologic care, including well-woman exams, birth-control options and management, treatment of gynocologic infections, and assessment of common gynocologic problems. Ungerleider is also a CenteringPregnancy group prenatal care facilitator.

Gina Quinlivan, an advanced-practice gynecologic clinician, recently joined Baystate Ob/Gyn Group, bringing many years of experience in women’s health. Since 2000, she has focused her career on the specialty of gynecologic healthcare, providing women with well-woman care and screenings, family planning including IUD and Nexplanon management, assessment and treatment of common gynocologic problems and infections, as well as skilled care of LGBTQ clients.
