A holistic approach

If you are pregnant, the certified nurse midwives at UW Health provide personal care throughout your pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum period.

Our nurse midwives know how to recognize health and pregnancy risk factors. We work together with obstetricians, gynecologists and any other specialists your condition requires.

We believe you have the right to safe, satisfying health care. We treat you with respect as we care for all aspects of your health. We focus on your physical and mental well-being and personalize your care plans for your health and the health of your baby.
