Megan Jacklin, MSN, CNM, ARNP


Megan has always been fascinated with the resilience and brilliance of our bodies throughout the different stages of reproduction. Her special interests include: fertility preservation, third-party reproduction, holistic health and wellness. Her mission is to provide patients with compassionate care, evidence-based education, anticipatory guidance, and unconditional support with every interaction and ultimately have a ripple effect within the community.

Megan completed her undergraduate studies at University of California, Irvine where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in 2009. As a registered nurse, she specialized in perinatal nursing including: childbirth education, labor, birth, postpartum, newborn care, and high-risk obstetrics. In 2015, she expanded her perinatal discipline to include the sub-specialty of fertility medicine where she served as a fertility nurse coordinator, onco-fertility liaison, and third-party coordinator for six years.

In 2020, Megan earned her Master’s degree in Nurse Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University and has incorporated her midwifery training into her fertility practice. She believes that being a fertility midwife is to help patients navigate their reproductive journey and be a guide on their often-times tumultuous path. Megan believes that this discipline is where medicine meets mystery and sometimes against all odds, life finds a way, a family is born out of grief and sorrow, and hope conquers all.

Her other notable achievements include:

  • Vice Chair of the ASRM Complementary and Integrative Medicine Special Interest Group (2022)
  • Nominee: Nurse of the Year for Oregon Health & Science University (2021 & 2022)
  • Keynote speaker for A Walk for Remembrance: National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day (2018)
