Certified nurse midwives (CNMs) are primary care providers that place a special emphasis on pregnancy, childbirth, and gynecological health.
Midwives approach women’s health care with the philosophy of prevention, education, and working with the client to meet her health care needs throughout the seasons of life.
They empower and partner with women to create the birth experience they desire, whether it be natural birth or with the use of an epidural. They provide full scope midwifery care, including prenatal visits and education, bedside natural labor support, breastfeeding education and support, postpartum care, annual exams, contraception, and gynecological care.
Midwifery care offers expert individualized care with continuous assistance during labor and delivery and postpartum support. This woman-centered model of care has been shown to improve outcomes for mother and baby.
