Pregnancy and Delivery
Throughout a woman’s pregnancy, a certified nurse-midwife is the perfect support system. Not only does she meet the health needs of you and baby, but she also listens to your personal and emotional needs during every stage of care.
Before baby is born, your certified nurse-midwife will help monitor and maintain the health of mother and baby. She will also provide education and resources to help you achieve a healthy pregnancy, like eating right, exercising and taking prenatal vitamins.
During labor and delivery, your certified nurse-midwife will be at your side, making sure everything is progressing as it should be and helping you make important choices.
Postpartum Care and Beyond
Beginning immediately after labor and delivery, your certified nurse-midwife acts as a guide to becoming a new mother. She will help you learn more about parenting, especially as you and your new baby spend your first few weeks together. Because she has been there for you all along, your certified nurse-midwife is the perfect coach if you have questions or concerns about breastfeeding or infant care.
Even long after baby is born, a certified nurse-midwife will provide healthcare throughout a woman’s life. She can perform Pap tests and breast exams, provide birth control methods, test for sexually transmitted diseases and care for other gynecologic conditions. She’s the perfect support system throughout your health journey.
