Midwifery Services

A holistic approach to care

Certified nurse midwives are registered nurses who have completed training in midwifery services. They are licensed by the state of Ohio Board of Nursing and certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives.

Midwives often work as part of a team to provide care such as:

  • Routine gynecological exams
  • Help with pre-pregnancy planning
  • Pregnancy care
  • Assistance with labor and delivery
  • Education on infant care and self-care, such as nutrition and exercise


Many women may choose to see a midwife if they are seeking a more holistic approach to their delivery—focusing on fewer technological and invasive interventions. At Southwest General, midwives work closely with board-certified obstetrician/gynecologists who are available to help if complications occur during routine care or during pregnancy, labor and delivery.
