A certified nurse-midwife is a registered nurse who has completed an accredited education program in nurse-midwifery and has passed a national certifying exam. Certified nurse-midwives provide prenatal care, deliver babies, and offer women’s gynecology care from the first menstrual cycle through menopause.
Midwives at the Women’s Health Specialists take a personal approach to childbirth, stressing the importance of education and emotional support for parents. We recognize the diversity in women’s desires and will work with you regarding support and pain management in the process of having your baby. In labor, we will honor and follow physiologic principles for childbirth wherever possible so that your natural hormones for birth and breastfeeding are operating at their best. This blending of expertise allows us to provide safe and satisfying births. A midwife can help preserve the “normal” aspects of pregnancy and birth even for a woman who needs lots of intervention to bring her baby safely into the world.

Every birth is a special event at the Women’s Health Specialists at Norwegian American Hospital! We are excited that you chose us to share this journey with you.

Women’s Health Specialists at NAH offer comprehensive, board certified gynecologic care, including annual preventative exams, reproductive/contraceptive management, and treatment for menopause or other gynecologic conditions. We believe that maintaining your gynecologic health is an integral part of your overall health.
Based on preference, our patients may visit a physician or midwife for routine gynecological exams and general issues, such as vaginitis, contraception, abnormal bleeding, urinary tract infections, and screening for sexually transmitted diseases. Our physicians will often work more closely with complex issues involving medications or surgical interventions. However, the beauty of our practice is the ability to migrate between a physician or midwife based on your individual needs.
Midlife and Beyond
The voyage through midlife and menopause is a unique and personal experience for each woman. Our providers have years of experience helping women during this special stage of their lives. Opportunities to embrace these changes – whether emotional, spiritual, relational or physical – abound.
