Midwifery Services from Comprehensive Women’s Health in Gainesville
Midwifery offers a holistic and natural approach to pregnancy and birth. The midwives of Comprehensive Women’s Health are responsible for monitoring the health and well-being of patients and babies and providing physical and emotional support during and immediately after a pregnancy.
Our midwives are highly qualified health care providers. They are certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) — the most highly trained professionals in the field of midwifery. They are registered nurses (RNs) who have earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a Master’s Degree in Nursing and have passed the National Board examination from the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
All of our midwives are also advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs). Their additional licensure allows them to provide a comprehensive array of low-risk, well-woman health care services to women of all ages.
Our CNMs also provide the following services:
Education about reproductive health and personal care, including nutrition and exercise recommendations, and pre-pregnancy counseling.
Prescriptions for a variety of medications including treatment for infections and options for contraception.
The complete spectrum of care before, during and after pregnancy for the low-risk patient, including birth plans and breast-feeding support.
Well-woman gynecological examination beginning in adolescence and continuing through the menopause years.
