Now Offering 24/7 Midwifery

Before you bring your baby into the world, a lot of decisions have to be made. One of those decisions is whether or not to use a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM). Certified Nurse-Midwives are registered nurses who have received advanced training in women’s health and midwifery. They have also passed a national certification examination.

Today, Certified Nurse-Midwives write prescriptions and provide a variety of services, including:

  • Prenatal care
  • Labor & delivery care
  • Care after birth
  • Disease prevention
  • Family planning assistance
  • Gynecological exams
  • Health maintenance counseling
  • Menopausal management
  • Preconception care

CNMs work to support and educate women through all phases of pregnancy and delivery, and support both medicated and non-medicated delivery methods. They are especially skilled at using alternative birthing positions, birthing balls, hydrotherapy, and massage. You will work with your CNM to determine the best delivery options for you. However, if medical intervention is needed, your midwife will take the steps necessary to ensure a healthy outcome for you and your baby.

Summa Health offers the largest midwifery team in the region. This team is available any time, day or night for your delivery.
