At Southdale ObGyn, midwifery services consist of:
You may begin your care with a CNM before you become pregnant, at the beginning of your pregnancy, or up to 32 weeks. Women with low risk pregnancies seeking minimal intervention during pregnancy and delivery will be thrilled with midwives' personal and professional support level.
Midwives are endorsed and backed by a team of physicians, so consultation and treatment are always available for unexpected complications. They can personalize the process and help guide you through all the phases of pregnancy, working to ensure your good health and your baby's health.
When you enter labor, your midwife will meet you at the hospital and spend time with you as labor progresses. She will work with you and your family, encouraging and coaching you. She will be there to steady and guide you as birth approaches and work with the hospital staff to help you achieve a healthy delivery.
Southdale ObGyn midwives also care for you in the postpartum period, including any care needed after delivery and your postpartum visit.
