Having a baby is one of the most memorable events in a woman’s life. And whether it’s your first child or your fifth, you may have many questions.
Every woman has unique health care needs and requires individual attention. Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM), such as those at Women’s Medical Center, are known for their ability to listen to a woman and develop a partnership for care. Not only does the CNM care for the woman during pregnancy and delivery, but throughout her lifetime.
What is a Certified Nurse Midwife?
Certified Nurse Midwives are Registered Nurses with advanced education in nurse midwifery and hold a Master’s degree in nursing. The CNM’s at Women’s Medical Center have all graduated from the esteemed Nurse Midwifery Education program at UNM, one of the top schools for midwifery in the nation – right behind Yale.*
The art of midwifery can reduce the need for high-tech interventions for most women in the birth process. But when necessary, the CNM is trained to make the latest in scientific procedures available while in the safety of the hospital setting. CNM’s can prescribe medication as needed and have physicians available for consultation, collaboration and referral, when necessary.
The physicians at Women’s Medical Center value the expertise and holistic approach that the CNM’s offer to women and they are proud to partner with them in offering a health care choice for the women in our community.
If you are pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, or need a woman’s health care provider, make an appointment to see a Certified Nurse Midwife at Women’s Medical Center today. Begin a health care partnership that could last a lifetime!
