A Note from Mari Kim Bunnell, MD

I am writing to share that I will be transitioning my clinical practice beginning December 31, 2021 as I take time to celebrate my new role as Grandma and reconnect with my past work in maternal safety.  I have had the pleasure of caring for women over the last 35 years and I am proud and grateful to have served as your physician.  During 2022, I will continue to answer questions and help you select a new care provider.  You may also visit our website,, to view our provider profiles.  My primary role will be at Brigham and Women’s Hospital where I will work with the New England OB-GYN physicians in Labor and Delivery.

My focus will also be shifting towards more projects in women’s health and equity.  In collaboration with Brigham and Women’s Hospital, I established the Fourth Trimester Fund this year to provide resources to transition women safely through the postpartum period.  This is an area of Obstetrics I plan to concentrate my work both in Boston and internationally.  I hope you will join me in supporting Brigham and Women’s Hospital through the Fourth Trimester Fund (

As many of you know, my daughter, Megan, is now an OB-GYN resident in the combined program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital where I trained 33 years ago.  I feel I am safely passing the baton to the next generation of women’s health providers and look forward to the future.

In Health and Happiness,

Mari Kim Bunnell, MD
