Pregnancy & Midwifery

Welcome to the exciting time of pregnancy, a physically and mentally challenging time. We are here to care and assist you with the best obstetrical treatment possible. Anticipatory guidance will be offered to prepare you for future changes associated with a pregnancy and to inform you of classes such as breast feeding, Stork Express, and prepared childbirth at appropriate times. Ultrasounds will be offered at different times in the pregnancy. Family members are welcome as part of your team and as an important part of your support system. Our goal will be to assist you to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy outcome for you and your baby.

 

A Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) is a registered nurse who has graduated from an advanced degree program accredited by the American College of Nurse Midwives. Midwives specialize in the care of normal healthy women, assisting them before, during, and after pregnancy. CNM’s here at Women’s Healthcare Associates provide prenatal, postpartum, and uncomplicated gynecological care/family planning. Our CNM’s attend normal births at Onslow Memorial Hospital. Midwives monitor the health of you and your baby during pregnancy, providing education and support during this major life changing event. CNM’s, working closely with our excellent physicians, allow for recent innovations in obstetric care, while in a comfortable relaxed setting.
