SoutheastHEALTH continues to expand women's health services by offering nurse-midwifery care to women in the region. You can trust that our midwives are graduate-prepared advanced practice registered nurses who are board certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives.

Personalized Pregnancy Experience
Many women choose midwives because they desire a personalized, natural approach to pregnancy and delivery. Midwives specialize in forming a strong relationship with patients, working with you to learn and value your specific needs and preferences. You can be assured that our midwives will provide the information and support you need to make the best decisions for you and your baby.
Certified midwives are experts in medication-free labor and delivery, but also offer access to pain medication if you prefer. They are trained to recognize and manage problems early. If the birthing process becomes complicated, the entire OB team at Southeast Hospital is available to offer immediate assistance. Even in the event that a cesarean section is required, the midwife will remain with you to guide you through the process.
