Certified Nurse-Midwives

At Midwest Center for Women’s HealthCare, we offer the choice to have a Certified Nurse-Midwife (C.N.M.) care for you during your pregnancy and delivery.

 

The primary focus of a C.N.M. is to support, educate and nurture a woman through the course of pregnancy and childbirth utilizing any interventions needed to safely deliver a healthy baby. A C.N.M. can also provide gynecological services from adolescence through menopause, including complete physicals, annual exams, screening tests, mammograms and blood tests.

Certified Nurse-Midwives see patients monthly and weekly during pregnancy and provide support and care during labor, including delivering the baby. C.N.M.s are available 24/7 for their own patients and are recommended for single-birth, low-risk pregnancies.

Our C.N.M.s are licensed Advanced Practice Nurses (A.P.N.) who’ve received graduate-level education in nursing, midwifery, obstetrics and gynecology. They offer flexible, individualized care during pregnancy, labor and birth, as well as provide well-woman gynecological care – and as A.P.N.s, they are licensed to prescribe medication. If a nurse midwifery patient should develop complications during labor, or requires medical intervention such as the use of forceps or a Caesarean section, the collaborating Midwest Center for Women’s HealthCare obstetrician will be available to assist in the delivery.

Certified Nurse Midwives are in practice at several of our locations. Please check the “Physicians and Healthcare Professionals” section of this Web site to find out which of our locations offer Certified Nurse-Midwifery services.
