Certified Nurse Midwives
Certified Nurse Midwives are experts in traditional vaginal birth and have a deep trust in women's bodies and the birth process. They encourage women and their families to actively participate in their healthcare by providing individualized education, counseling, pre-natal care, labor and delivery, and postpartum support.
Certified Nurse Midwives believe that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes. They feel that labor is best experienced in a place where women feel safe and have attendants that they know and trust. All aspects of a woman are involved in pregnancy and childbirth including her feelings, hopes, fears and physical, spiritual and practical needs, as well as those of her partners.
The birth process is unique to each woman, and we are founded on these beliefs. Our board-certified OB/GYN physicians support this philosophy and are readily available for assistance if it becomes necessary.
Other Birthing Options
We support each patient's choice including natural birth, water birth or medicated birth. Birthing tubs, showers, birth balls and birthing chairs are available, as well as monitoring that allows patient mobility.
In addition, our Certified Nurse Midwives offer well-woman services including yearly exams and birth control.
