The word “midwife” originates from the phrase “with woman,” and we believe that perfectly summarizes the role that our midwives play in the care of their patients.
Certified Nurse Midwives specialize in the care of women during pregnancy, birth, and after delivery. In addition, midwives also provide family planning and routine health care for women.
Midwives have masters-level education, board certification and a state license to practice. We see patients in the clinic for women’s health annual check-ups, for birth control management, as well as for prenatal and postpartum care. At our hospital practice, we admit clients, manage their labors and help them deliver their babies safely. We also prescribe medications, insert intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants, provide breastfeeding support and even perform circumcisions. We work in a team with our labor and delivery nurses and our Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) surgeon colleagues, who are available 24/7. A midwife’s services are covered by insurance.
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 expert team of Midwives are available to serve patients throughout the Greater Rochester and are ready to provide compassionate, personalized care to women at all stages of life.
