Midwifery Care

Midwives are trained healthcare professionals who take care of people from “menarche through menopause” (or from their first period through the rest of their life) and specialize in caring for people during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. Midwives also take care of healthy newborns through 28 days of life.
There are many different types of midwives, but certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are midwives who train as registered nurses before becoming midwives; the Affinia Healthcare Midwifery Team consists of CNMs. Our midwives are “experts in the normal” and practice according to the Midwifery Model of Care, which approaches pregnancy and birth as normal/physiologic processes. Midwives can attend births at home, birth centers, and in hospitals, however, Affinia Healthcare midwives will bring their birth services to the local hospitals. Although many people who choose to have an unmedicated or “natural” birth may choose a midwife, our midwives can also care for patients who choose to have pain medication or an epidural during labor and birth.

High-quality, family-centered care

Our certified nurse-midwives are trained healthcare professionals who provide sexual health and gynecological/reproductive health services and specialize in caring for people during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. There is some overlap between the scopes of CNMs and OBGYNs, but midwives are not surgeons. Midwives provide care for all patients, but consult/collaborate with OBGYN and/or MFM colleagues for high-risk conditions and refer when surgery is necessary.

Midwives also provide some primary care services for adolescents, adults and care for healthy newborns during the first 28 days of life. You and your baby can see a midwife together in the immediate postpartum period!

Many of our midwives are also Family Nurse Practitioners, so you may continue to see them for yourself and/or your entire family’s primary care needs, even after your baby is born.
