Nurse-Midwifery at St Joseph’s – for a powerful birth & beyond

St Joseph’s Medical Group provides integrated Nurse Midwifery care as part of our comprehensive reproductive health services.

What is a Certified Nurse Midwife?

CNMs are advanced practice nurses trained to provide comprehensive care during pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding. After your pregnancy, CNMs can help you with your family planning needs, wellness visits, and provide care for gynecological concerns.

The Midwifery Difference

Nurse-midwives offer a holistic approach to pregnancy and birth. We recognize pregnancy and birth are a powerful and transformative stage in your life. We partner with you in this process and support you to make informed, empowered choices for your health. We believe in your body’s ability to birth your baby safely, but if the need arises, our CNMs work together with our physician colleagues to provide safe and satisfying care.

Studies show that families who are attended by Nurse Midwives have fewer cesarean sections, labor inductions, medical and surgical interventions, and preterm deliveries. Midwifery care also leads to increased rates of breastfeeding, earlier detection of post-partum depression & anxiety, and increased rates of positive birth experiences.
