Future Services That Will Be Added
Our personalized approach to obstetric and gynecological care was created to ensure every woman we see is treated as she is our only patient. From first discovering the wonderful news to delivering your baby, well exams and imaging to intervention and robotic surgery, our care and treatment options address every milestone a woman experiences.
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).
