Chibbi Iwelu, MD

Dr. Chibbi Iwelu joined Women Obstetrics & Gynecology in July 2020. 

While watching Dr. Iwelu practice obstetrics and gynecology  for the past four years at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital, Dr. Schlechter, and the rest of our practice fell in love with her steady, confident and compassionate way. We knew that she would make a great addition to our group. Upon Dr. Schlechter’s transition in October, we were thrilled Dr. Iwelu accepted our offer to join us. 

Dr. Iwelu is originally from Huntsville, Alabama and first came to Nashville after failing out of astronaut school (yes, that’s a thing). She came to Vanderbilt University for undergraduate degree, University of Tennessee for medical school, and back to Nashville for her residency. She and her husband, a die hard Georgia fan, live in blissful harmony except for one Saturday every fall. Dr. Iwelu enjoys reading in her spare time as well as buying and promptly killing succulents. Hope springs eternal, no?
