Dr. Linda Burke

A Champion for Pregnant Women


Dr. Linda Burke (formerly Burke-Galloway), is a board-certified OB-GYN on a mission to keep pregnant women and their unborn babies out of harm's way. Many years ago, during her residency training, she finished her shift and signed out a patient to a colleague who was on-call. The next day, she returned to work and discovered the patient had a stillbirth delivery. This was the patient's first pregnancy and she was 39 years old. Dr. Burke was infuriated and devastated. She has been on a mission to prevent stillbirths and other obstetrical complications every since. Her book, "The Smart Mother's Guide to a Better Pregnancy: How to Minimize Risks, Avoid Complications and Have a Healthy Baby" speaks for itself.


Dr. Burke shares her 30-plus years of clinical expertise as a highly sought-after OB GYN physician with federal and states agencies, has 20 years of experience as a peer reviewer for medical malpractice cases on behalf of the federal government, is a member of District 12 American College of OB-GYN Perinatal Morbidity Committee, a Diplomate of the American Board of Obstetrician-Gynecologists, and develops innovative pregnancy apps. She has been interviewed via several media platforms, including the CNN with Medical Correspondent, Elizabeth Cohen show.

Dr. Burke is a graduate of the City College of New York, Columbia University School of Social Work, Boston University School of Medicine and received a post-residency certificate in Clinical Informatics from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

 

Her greatest and most cherished achievement is being the mother of her sons, K & M.
