From childbirth to routine gynecologic care, Inspira Health’s certified nurse midwives are here to ensure your journey is met with compassion—upholding the same high standards they would choose for themselves and honoring your personal experiences and preferences.

What is Midwifery?

Midwifery is more than a profession—it’s a philosophy of care that centers around the belief that everyone deserves personalized, compassionate support throughout their health journey. Certified nurse midwives are trained health care professionals with expertise in gynecology and obstetrics, offering comprehensive care that encompasses not just pregnancy and childbirth, but also your overall health and emotional well-being. 

Midwifery care is distinguished by its focus on individualized attention and support. Midwives spend significant time getting to know their patients, listening to their concerns, and providing education and guidance every step of the way. From routine gynecologic visits and prenatal care to postpartum care and beyond, midwives can help you feel supported and empowered.

The Role of Midwifery Care

Midwifery starts with building trust and understanding between you and your midwife. Our certified nurse midwives prioritize listening to your concerns, offering guidance, and providing evidence-based education from your very first appointment.

Throughout your reproductive health journey, you’ll receive comprehensive care that goes beyond just monitoring your physical health. Our midwives are trained to address your emotional health, offering support and encouragement to help you feel confident and empowered. Whether you’re seeking gynecologic care or navigating pregnancy, your midwife will work closely with you to create a personalized care plan that reflects your values and preferences.

For those navigating pregnancy, our certified nurse midwives can support you through every step of the childbirth process. As long as your pregnancy remains low-risk, your midwife can continue to see you through delivery, offering guidance, reassurance, and compassionate care.
