Benefits of Midwifery
Midwifery Model of Care
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.
