Women’s Health



The Midwives at Rochester Regional Health provide comprehensive, individualized gynecologic and obstetric care for women of all ages – from adolescence through pregnancy, menopause, and beyond.

Serving women throughout the Rochester area, the Certified Nurse Midwives at Rochester Regional Health are independent women’s health care providers licensed by New York State and certified by the American College of Nurse Midwives.

Our care philosophy is based on the belief that pregnancy and birth can be normal and empowering events in the life of a woman. We treat our patients as partners in their healthcare and provide personal, respectful care for each woman and her family.
