More Choices for You

We’re committed to patients first, which is why we offer more choices for your care. At St. Luke’s, can choose a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) as their primary care provider. While some patients only consider midwives during childbirth and pregnancy, Certified Nurse Midwives offer full-scope care throughout a woman's life, from her first period through menopause and beyond.

Pregnancy Care

To a midwife, pregnancy is a natural process and not something that needs to be managed. Midwives are focused on supporting your birth plan and preferences first, with an affinity for a more natural approach to health care. Their nurturing care respects you, your family and your beliefs. In addition to ongoing health care, midwives also offer information, education and encouragement around topics such as pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, tests, nutrition and newborn care.

Personalized Care for Birth and Beyond

Certified Nurse Midwives are thought of for primarily pregnancy and childbirth, but the health care they offer spans nearly every stage of life.

Services provided by midwives include:

  • Annual well-women exams including Pap smears, breast and pelvic exams
  • Preconception and infertility counseling
  • Family planning and conception
  • Childbirth education and preparation
  • Osteoporosis risk assessment and reduction
  • Menopause management (nutrition, exercise, hormone and alternative therapies)
  • PMS/PMDD
  • Sexual health management
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STI) screening and counseling
