What kind of training do midwifery practitioners receive?

The practice of midwifery focuses on providing care to women during the experience of pregnancy and childbirth. Midwives also assist you while you adjust to motherhood during the postpartum period. Some midwives also provide routine gynecologic services, like family planning and annual well-woman examinations. 


Practitioners who choose to shape their careers around midwifery receive in-depth education and training on all aspects of pregnancy. They are trained to deliver top-quality care to women with routine, low-risk pregnancies. 


The midwifery practitioner at Advanced OB/GYNE Associates is a certified nurse-midwife and a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. She has completed a Master of Science in Nursing and holds multiple certifications.   

What are some services available through midwifery?

If you choose to work with a midwife during your pregnancy, you’ll receive highly personalized care. Your practitioner will guide you through the process, ensuring you receive the screenings needed at various stages of pregnancy. 


Prenatal care visits are where you receive ultrasound imaging to track your baby’s development, screenings for genetic or developmental issues, and information on how to have a healthy and happy pregnancy. 


Your midwife is also there to assist you through the birthing process. By the time the big day arrives, you’ll have worked out a birthing plan with your midwife and know what to expect. 


Midwifery also provides postpartum care. This process focuses on ensuring you transition into motherhood with ease. Your physical recovery, as well as your mental and emotional health, is important during this busy period of time. 

How do I know if midwifery is the right fit for my pregnancy?

Midwifery is a good option for women who have low-risk pregnancies. If you have any of the following health conditions, you might want to consider partnering with an OB/GYN for your pregnancy care:


  • History of seizures
  • History of high-risk pregnancies
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Expecting multiples
  • Diabetes


Every pregnancy is a unique experience. No matter how simple or complicated your needs are, the team at Advanced OB/GYNE Associates has the skills, training, and experience required to make your journey to motherhood as safe and enjoyable as possible.
