Our team of midwives offer a holistic approach to your health

Nurse-midwives present an alternative to traditional physician-centered gynecologic or obstetric care. Nurse-midwives are nurse practitioners––advanced practice nurses who are fully licensed by the American College of Nurse-Midwives––and have proven expertise in all areas of women’s health, including gynecologic, prenatal and postpartum care, as well as family planning and conditions related to menopause. Their holistic approach to health encompasses the various factors that can affect your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, such as lifestyle, work and family stress, and underlying illness.

A midwife CAN:

  • treat you through all phases of life (not just pregnancy and childbirth)
  • use alternative therapies to treat a variety of health problems
  • perform physical exams, provide sex education and prescribe birth control
  • provide family planning counseling assistance, pre-conception counseling, vaccinations and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • work with specialists in a variety of areas in traditional and alternative medicine, such as acupuncture, nutrition, yoga, physical therapy, psychology and more
  • assist with childbirth in the hospital, birthing center or your home
  • administer an epidural or assist with other pain management methods, suture post-delivery tearing, and assist an OB/GYN with Cesarean sections
  • secure insurance coverage

A midwife CANNOT:

  • perform a C-section or other surgery independently and can only assist an OB/GYN who must perform the surgery
  • attend a high-risk pregnancy and birth unaided. A professional midwife will always make sure you have immediate access to specialists who are prepared for the potential complications of a high-risk pregnancy. They will never try to handle them alone
Midwives at Phelps Hospital have expertise in all areas of women’s health and offer a holistic approach to care.

Phelps has the largest team of midwives in the area, offering holistic care through all stages of your life.

Our Breast Imaging Center uses the latest in breast imaging technology for the early detection of breast cancer, including Digital Mammography, which allows our radiologists to view images on high-resolution screens and enhance them to detect the smallest changes that may be warning signs for cancer. Our radiologists also use Computer Aided Detection (CAD) software to flag early cancer signs, as well as 3D Mammography, which allows doctors to view thin sections of breast tissue that the computer then transforms into a three-dimensional mammogram.
