Midwifery Services

A Different Approach to Childbirth

Choosing how to navigate a pregnancy and conduct childbirth is a very personal decision and some mothers-to-be want to take a different approach than a traditional hospital labor. In these cases, patients may choose to work with a qualified nurse-midwife for a more holistic approach to pregnancy health and childbirth. Several of our facilities offer trusted, knowledgeable midwifery programs for our patients and families who are expecting a child.

How our Nurse-Midwives Can Help

Midwifery is intended to bring a more personalized and holistic approach to pregnancy and prenatal care. Our nurse-midwives work with patients and families with expected low-risk pregnancies to monitor the health of the mother-to-be, educate them on pregnancy concerns, and ultimately deliver the child. Nurse-midwives also build rapport with their patients to provide emotional and spiritual support for the duration of the pregnancy and beyond.

Our midwifery services can include:

  • Preconception and pregnancy care and counseling
  • Collaboration with OB/GYN as necessary
  • Annual physical exams (including PAP smears)
  • Breastfeeding education and support
  • Local support group discussions on parenting topics
  • Birth control/family planning education and resources

What If Complications Arise?

Some patients are interested in using a nurse-midwife but are concerned that, if a serious complication occurs, they will not have access to the hospital's resources to address it. This is not the case at our facilities. Our nurse-midwives are registered nurses who have completed advanced training in women's health and midwifery. They know when hospital intervention is needed and will work side-by-side with doctors in these cases to protect the well-being of the mother-to-be and their child.
