Dr. Hodgson is a minor character in the second season of the TV Series. She is a Martha who formerly worked as a neonatologist before the creation of the Republic of Gilead.

Before the Takeover Edit

According to Serena Joy, Dr. Hodgson was one of the top neonatologists in the world.[1] At some point, she trained the mentor of Dr. Epstein.[1]

In the Present Edit

Season Two Edit

"Women's Work" Edit

Serena tells June that Angela isn't doing well and that they don't know what's wrong with her.They could ask one of the top female doctors but that would mean bending the law. Serena asks Fred if he can allow Dr. Hodgson, who is now a Martha, check on the baby. Fred says no because they can't "question the will of God".

Dr. Hodgson arrives, changes clothes and is briefed by Dr. Epstein. She runs some tests on the baby. The doctors later give Naomi and Warren Putnam bad news. Serena goes after Hodgson who says that all they can do is pray for the baby's recovery.

Janine is able to hold the baby in order to say goodbye. She is later seen holding a very much alive Angela.
