Dr Lynn Murphy-Kaulbeck, MD, MSC, FRCSC
Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist
The trust of her patients means everything to Dr Lynn Murphy-Kaulbeck, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist in Moncton.
“My specialty is exciting and constantly changing,” she said. “I also have the privilege of caring for women and their families, and of them allowing me to be part of this very significant time in their lives.”
Dr Murphy-Kaulbeck began her health care career as a nurse before she decided to switch her focus to medicine, and she received her medical degree from McMaster University in 1996. She went on to complete a five-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology through McGill University, followed by a two-year fellowship in Maternal Fetal Medicine through Dalhousie University. In 2008, Dr Murphy-Kaulbeck received a master’s degree in Community Health and Epidemiology from Dalhousie University.
“I had a passion for obstetrics and wanted to care for pregnant women,” she said.
Since 2004, Dr Murphy-Kaulbeck has practiced maternal fetal medicine at The Moncton Hospital. She specializes in caring for women with high-risk pregnancies, and also cares for women with a high likelihood of a risky pregnancy before they conceive.
“Caring for high-risk pregnancies, the outcomes are not always what we’d hope,” she said. “Women putting their trust in me to help them through what is often a difficult time – I feel very honoured.”
Since 2015, Dr Murphy-Kaulbeck has served as Medical Director for the New Brunswick Perinatal Care Program. She holds an appointment as Associate Professor in Obstetrics/Gynecology at Dalhousie University, as well as Assistant Professor in Obstetrics/Gynecology at Memorial University. She’s been active throughout her career with the New Brunswick Medical Society, various organizations and committees related to her specialty and medical education. Recently, she’s served as a member of the NBMS Executive Committee and as co-chair of the New Brunswick Reproductive Care Program Advisory Committee.
Outside of work, Dr Murphy-Kaulbeck volunteers with her children’s sports teams and school. She lives in Moncton with her husband George and two children, Ethan and Anna, and has a passion for traveling.
