Many women choose to deliver with the help of midwives because of a desire for a unique, personalized, birthing experience.

EvergreenHealth Midwifery Care is proud to offer women this experience, as well as access to a full range of services available through EvergreenHealth. 

Many women choose to partner with a midwife for their pregnancy and birth because they know that:

  • Midwives are watchful guardians of normal birth and practice judicious use of medical interventions only when necessary. Learn more about midwives
  • National research indicates that women who choose a nurse-midwife have lower rates of induction of labor, cesarean section, and perineal trauma, and higher rates of breastfeeding.
  • Certified nurse-midwives can prescribe medications and order diagnostic procedures when appropriate and medically indicated.
  • Prenatal appointments with midwives tend to be longer than those with physicians, and midwives tend to spend more time by a woman’s side in labor – supporting her and watching for any health concerns.
  • Midwives provide access to a host of pain relief options in labor, including massage, relaxation, use of a tub, and epidural anesthesia if desired.
  • EvergreenHealth midwives have access to obstetricians for collaboration and consultation when needed.
