She's here to make your birth 'happier and easier'

Angela Sojobi, RN, BSN, MSN, DNP

When asked how many babies she has delivered, Angela Sojobi laughs. “I stopped counting at 5,000, and that was 10 years ago,” she says. Born in Nigeria, Angela graduated from high school at the age of 15 and then went on to nursing school.

“I like helping to make the most important thing a woman does in her life easier and happier for her."


She moved to the United States at age 24 and became a registered nurse and midwife. She joined the staff at Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital in the fall of 2015. Since then, her warm smile and gentle coaching have guided many new mothers through childbirth.

Angela and the other midwives at the hospital stay with their patients all the way through labor and delivery. “We hold their hands,” Angela says. “We even help with breastfeeding after the baby is born. We also talk to the family to comfort them and teach them during the experience.”

Wondering what all those letters are after Angela’s name? They represent her nursing credentials:

  • RN stands for Registered Nurse.
  • BSN means she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing.
  • MSN means she earned her Master’s Degree in Nursing.
  • DNP stands for “Doctor of Nursing Practice.”

All of the letters together mean Angela is a very smart and educated professional. We’re glad she’s part of our maternity team!
