Midwives are licensed health care professionals and are registered nurses with advanced education in midwifery. They specialize in continuous labor support, comfort measures and pain management.
Our midwives have built a reputation for holistic, patient and family-centered care. They encourage you to trust your body, respect your delivery wishes and will put you at ease during this exciting and overwhelming time.
Women choose midwives because they enjoy building a strong relationship with their caregiver. They also appreciate midwives' holistic natural approach to prenatal care, labor and birth. Midwives offer guidance on proper nutrition, medications, comfort measures, sleep and safety. They encourage women to make birthing choices unique to their own needs.
Midwives support a variety of labor options including the freedom to move around, the use of birthing balls, positions to encourage the baby to rotate for better labor, water immersion, aromatherapy and the use of pain medications, including nitrous oxide.
Our midwives work in collaboration with OB/GYNS as needed to ensure optimum care for women and their babies.
