Our goal is to help you achieve your highest level of health and well-being. We’re committed to shared decision-making and personalized care delivered in a sensitive manner.
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?
Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) and Certified Midwives (CMs) have received a graduate-level education in a midwifery program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME). All CNMs and CMs have passed a national certification exam.
Midwives perform many services, including:
Routine gynecologic exams
Prescribing birth control
Obstetric care, including labor, delivery, and postpartum services
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. They are also not able to assist with pregnancies and births involving twins or other multiples.
