Midwife Services at CentraCare

Find a Nurse Midwife near you to Support Your Pregnancy Journey

Certified nurse midwives (CNM) are advanced practice registered nurses who have specialized training in midwifery and women's health. Nurse midwives provide comprehensive services to expectant mothers through the pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum periods. They offer a holistic and patient-centered approach to maternity care, focusing on the physical, emotional, and social well-being of mom and her baby.

Why Choose a Nurse Midwife?

Women choose midwives for prenatal care for a variety of reasons, as midwifery care offers a unique approach to pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum support. Certified nurse midwives offer personalized, evidence-based care that empowers expectant mothers to make informed decisions. They provide a supportive and respectful environment that contributes to a positive childbirth experience while prioritizing the health and safety of both mom and baby.

Nurse Midwives Offer:

  • Holistic Care: Nurse midwives provide a holistic approach to prenatal care, focusing on not only the physical aspects of pregnancy but also the emotional, psychological and social well-being of the mother.
  • Natural Birth Support: If you're interested in a natural or low-intervention childbirth experience, nurse midwives are typically well-versed in providing support for such births. They can help you explore options for pain management, labor positions, and alternative birthing techniques.
  • Empowerment and Education: Nurse-midwives emphasize patient education and empowerment. They often work closely with you to help you understand your pregnancy, birth options, and postpartum care, empowering you to make informed decisions about your health care.
  • Continuity of Care: Building a relationship with a nurse midwife throughout your pregnancy can result in continuity of care. This means that the same health care provider will be there for you during prenatal visits, labor and postpartum care, creating a sense of familiarity and trust.
