Denise Cox

Denise Cox, BSN, joined Montana Children's Maternal-Fetal Medicine with more than 15 years of experience at a fast-paced OB/GYN private practice and on the labor and delivery units at Kalispell Regional Medical Center and North Valley Hospital. She is devoted to the field of obstetrics and passionate about caring for woman as they navigate pregnancy, labor and childbirth. She enjoys the everyday challenges and opportunities for clinical growth that arise from caring for high risk-patients. In addition, she is an avid proponent of patient-centered care – working hard to ensure that patients have a choice in their own care. In her free time, Denise is dedicated to the practice of yoga. She routinely attends yoga instructor trainings and seminars to lend a more holistic approach to her nursing background. When not at the clinic or on the yoga mat, you will find Denise with her family and friends rock climbing, backpacking and adventuring in the great outdoors.

Beth Darnell

Beth Darnell Beth Darnell performs ultrasound exams for Montana Children's Maternal-Fetal Medicine. She is passionate about guiding families through the process of seeing their unborn child, often for the very first time, offering emotional support as needed. Having extensive experience in ultrasound, Beth initially worked in a community hospital setting as a clinical instructor, later serving as the lead sonographer. Following the birth of her triplets, Beth developed a heightened interest in obstetrics with a desire to pursue training in specialized fetal studies. An opportunity to work with Northwest Perinatal Center in Portland, Oregon, allowed Beth to follow her dream and obtain credentialing in fetal echocardiography, first trimester screening and cervical length. She supervised a growing, multicenter ultrasound program, obtaining accreditation with the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine and organizing continuing education opportunities for clinicians and staff. Beth looks forward to using her skills to serve the Kalispell region and is very happy to be part of the Montana Children's Maternal-Fetal Medicine team.
