As part of our commitment to meeting your unique needs and desires, we offer midwifery services at several of our locations throughout the Greater Phoenix metropolitan area.

What Is a Midwife?

A midwife is a trained healthcare professional who specializes in providing comprehensive care to women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Midwives emphasize a holistic approach to healthcare, focusing on physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.

Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) have received a graduate-level education in a midwifery program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME). All CNMs have passed a national certification exam.

Our Approach

At Women’s Health Arizona, our team of certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) collaborate closely with obstetricians and other healthcare providers to offer a wide range of services tailored to your unique needs. Our midwives provide many services, including:

  • Routine gynecologic exams
  • Prescribing birth control
  • Prenatal Care
  • Labor and Birth Support
  • Postpartum Care
  • Well-Woman Care

They can also offer post-delivery services like lactation and nutritional support. While midwives are highly trained and qualified to assist with low-risk pregnancies and births, they cannot perform cesarean sections. However, they may assist the physicians with cesarean sections to promote continuity of care with those patients that desire midwifery support and services. For your safety, they are able to provide supportive care for twin pregnancies under the supervision and management of our skilled physicians.

Why Choose Midwifery Care?

Choosing midwifery care offers many benefits, including:

  • Personalized Care: Our midwives take the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and involve you in decisions about your care.
  • Supportive Environment: We provide a warm and supportive environment where you can feel empowered and respected throughout your healthcare journey.
  • Focus on Natural Birth: If you desire a natural childbirth experience, our midwives offer expertise in supporting unmedicated births and promoting interventions only when necessary.
  • Continuity of Care: With midwifery care, you can build a trusting relationship with your provider, ensuring continuity of care from pregnancy through the postpartum period.
