Midwifery Care

A certified nurse-midwife (CNM) is a registered nurse with a Master’s degree in women’s health care and midwifery. Nurse-midwifery care includes:

  • Prenatal care for normal pregnancies
  • Postpartum care
  • Hospital delivery
  • Well woman exams, preventative care and pap testing
  • Birth control counseling, including IUD and Nexplanon insertion
  • STD testing

The word “midwife” means “with woman”. Certified nurse-midwives take the time to be with women :

During pregnancy - taking time to answer questions and to teach

During labor - helping women minimize pain while supporting the labor process

During delivery - to ensure each woman has a joyful birth experience

During recovery - supporting parenting and breastfeeding

During a lifetime - providing well-woman care

Nurse-midwives consider birth a natural event in women’s lives and view childbirth as a healthy, normal process. They intervene in this process only when it is clearly needed. Our CNMs deliver at Skagit Valley Hospital where epidurals are available if needed or desired.
