Nurse midwife services at Allegheny Health Network: why choose us?
Our certified nurse midwives partner with you to provide:
- A holistic approach: We work closely with you to offer education that helps you take a higher level of ownership of your health care. We support your right to create the birth experience that’s best for you, as well as make informed decisions about all health needs that reflect your beliefs and values.
- A focus on you: Nurse midwives can dedicate more time to your visits than most OB-GYNs. This additional one-on-one time allows us to fully listen to and address your concerns.
- Personalized birth experience: Our focus is on the natural, healthy processes of pregnancy, labor, and delivery. When possible, we avoid interventions, such as labor-inducing drugs. This approach often results in lower cesarean section birth rates and greater success with vaginal births after cesarean (VBAC) section. Should you experience complications during pregnancy or labor, we tap the expertise of AHN’s highly skilled OB-GYNs.
- Exceptional care: We have decades of experience delivering babies and caring for women’s health care needs. Our team adheres to strict care standards established by the American College of Nurse-Midwives and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Meet our team.
