Nurse Midwives

A nurse-midwife is a registered nurse who has received extra training in an accredited midwifery program to become board-certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Nurse-midwives can provide a full range of primary health care services for women, including:

  • Gynecological care
  • Preconception counseling
  • Birth control treatment
  • Infection treatment
  • Natural birth delivery
  • Water birth delivery
  • Planned epidural treatment

An acceptable alternative to an OB/GYN, a nurse-midwife is able to provide more of a hands-on approach to well-women and pregnancy care. A nurse-midwife spends quality time with her patients to understand their unique healthcare needs. For pregnancy care, a nurse-midwife provides physical and emotional support, education and training, such as breathing and relaxation techniques, to promote a safe and healthy delivery experience.
