Personalized Midwifery Care

SM Midwives
Allison Molinski, CNM, and Denise Castellanos, CNM

Embrace a personalized journey to motherhood with our comprehensive midwife care. Discover the expertise and support that will empower you throughout your pregnancy and beyond. From prenatal care to childbirth education, our certified nurse midwives tailor care to meet your unique needs.

Our midwifery philosophy of care includes prenatal education and counseling, which enables women to make informed choices for their best birth experience, and the autonomy to decide what choice they feel is natural.

Midwives can be the sole provider for healthy women with uncomplicated pregnancies before, during and after giving birth. They offer mothers a holistic approach during the childbirth process, support natural childbirth techniques, provide guidance and support during the pushing phase, and offer assistance to find a position of comfort for mothers’ labor and delivery.

Each provider joining our team has received board certification through the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB).
