Certified Nurse Midwives are medical professionals who manage the processes of labor, delivery and postpartum care. Midwifery minimizes the level of medical intervention during pregnancy and delivery. Our team of CNMs offer healthcare for women from adolescence through adulthood, including pregnancy and holistic birth.
Why choose a Certified Nurse Midwife?
Certified Nurse Midwives are Nurse Practitioners who specialize in obstetrics and gynecology. A CNM may be the best fit for you if you are looking for holistic and patient-centered care. Midwives act as a partner to empower you to play an active role in your health.
Midwives take the time to listen, understand your needs, and educate and support you in your choices. Their goal is to support your individualized birth plan while promoting over health and well-being for you and your baby through a life-changing and fulfilling experience.
