A happy, healthy delivery is universally desired by all expectant moms, but getting there is truly a unique process for each woman – filled with diverse choices and a range of challenges. One of the most loving steps you can take for yourself and your baby is to connect with the level of care that best meets your physical and emotional needs.
Midwifery care through Axia Women’s Health provides a gentle, supportive approach to pregnancy care, combining compassionate, progressive care with a drive to enrich your birth experience in safety and comfort.
Working with a midwife offers you the opportunity to experience evidence-based and low-intervention care while still having access to physician directed intervention when medically necessary. This supportive model of care fosters a shared approach to decision making during pregnancy, labor, and delivery – giving you the tools to shape your own experience.
Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs) are board-certified health care providers with advanced training in nursing, personalized maternity care, and women’s health care. While they are known primarily for their expertise in childbirth, they also provide basic primary and gynecological care for women throughout all phases of their lives.
A midwife’s approach centers on the belief that pregnancy and childbirth are natural, healthy processes and that many women require few, if any, medical interventions. They practice with a heavy focus on education and empowerment and are experts in knowing the difference between normal changes that occur during pregnancy and symptoms that require extra attention.
Even still, midwives don’t go it alone – they work closely with obstetricians to ensure access to any necessary medical interventions should any complications arise.
The very roots of the term midwife – with woman – reflect their holistic role: to be with you, listen to you, share knowledge with you, and guide you through this special yet sometimes challenging time in your life. You’ll receive continuous, hands-on assistance that incorporates your family’s wants, needs, and desires into every decision.
CNMs support over 300,000 women in their childbirth experience each year in the U.S. – with excellent birth outcomes and high patient satisfaction.
Women with healthy, low-risk pregnancies are most often the best fit for midwife care, but women with certain high-risk conditions may still be able to partner with both a midwife and an obstetrician in order to receive the additional support they desire.
Our providers can help you carefully consider your personal circumstances to determine what level of care best meets your medical and emotional needs.
We believe that individually tailored care can create a safe, confident, and beautiful childbirth experience. You’ll find the compassionate, individualized care you desire at each of our midwifery locations below.
