Our office currently offers the services of Julie Rinehart and Kelli Daughtery Nurse midwifery. Selecting a Nurse-Midwife is appropriate for low risk pregnancies, which constitute 60-80% of all pregnancies. One of the main reasons that you might choose a midwife is to experience childbirth as naturally as possible. Because of their expertise, midwives are often part of labor and delivery teams within the hospitals.
Midwives can offer an array of healthcare services for women that can include annual gynecological exams, family planning and preconception care, prenatal care, labor and delivery support and menopausal management. They also provide reproductive education in fertility, nutrition and exercise, contraception, pregnancy health and breastfeeding.
