Nurse midwives are advanced-practice providers with specialized training, education and certification in women's health. They are an integral part of the Obstetrics and Gynecology team.
Nurse midwives care for women from early adolescence through the onset of menopause, including prenatal care. Just like physicians, they are qualified to prescribe and administer medications as independent, licensed practitioners. Midwifery care focuses on providing holistic, evidence-based medicine and encouraging women to make informed decisions about their health care.
