Our midwife team offers an elevated option for all your female healthcare needs. We’re proud to include this specialized care in a unique setting – our physician’s office.
Midwives have been delivering babies since the dawn of civilization. However, today’s certified nurse midwives must be educated with advanced degrees and complete a rigorous certification process. Our midwives focus on treating the “whole patient” and approach childbirth and well-woman care as a natural process. Nationally, midwives tend to experience better delivery outcomes and receive high marks for their approach to safety and pain relief.
The members of our Midwife Team are Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs) – registered nurses with graduate education in midwifery. They have all completed post-graduate education from a program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME). They also have passed the national certification exam of the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB).
Our CNMs provide general women’s health care throughout your lifespan. These services include general health check-ups and physical exams; pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care; well woman gynecologic care; and treatment of sexually transmitted infections. They can prescribe a full range of treatment and medications, including pain control medications.
