    OBGYN Physicians

    Our obstetricians are fully-trained and boarded medical doctors who have completed the requirements set by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. They offer a full range of women's health services, including pre-pregnancy counseling, prenatal care and checkups, and are present for the delivery of the baby. Additionally, their specialized training allows them to manage complications from higher-risk pregnancies and to perform a cesarean section, should the need arise.

    Midwives

    Our certified nurse-midwives are independent women’s health care providers licensed by New York State and certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Midwives specialize in care during pregnancy, birth, and after delivery. In addition to providing prenatal care, midwives are able to handle the majority of all labor and delivery situations, especially in low-risk pregnancies. Our midwives work closely with our obstetricians throughout the health system and a physician is physically present in our Birthing Centers 24/7 for consultation and medical intervention as needed.
