Our doctors, midwives and nurses are some of the most experienced in the country. They can guide you through a normal pregnancy and pregnancy complications, such as gestational diabetes, preeclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy) and preterm labor.

Obstetricians (OBs)

Obstetricians (OBs) are doctors who care for a woman’s reproductive system. Your OB will lead your medical care throughout pregnancy, during childbirth and after childbirth (postpartum).

You will see your obstetrician many times for prenatal care appointments. When it’s time for your baby’s birth, your OB will join you at The Mother Baby Center.

Certified nurse-midwives

"Midwife" means "with woman." Your midwife will work closely with you and your doctor to care for you and your baby during pregnancy, childbirth and after delivery.

A certified nurse-midwife is a registered nurse who has advanced training and certification from the American College of Nurse-Midwives. For more about nurse-midwife certification, visit midwife.org.

Midwives also coordinate family planning and general health care for women of all ages.
