At St. Joseph Hospital Midwifery, we bring women’s healthcare “full circle,” providing care for women throughout their reproductive years and beyond. From first exams for adolescents to post-menopausal counseling, our certified nurse midwives offer sensitive care that combines clinical expertise with an understanding of a woman’s physical and emotional needs.
Midwives are experts in women’s healthcare. The term midwife means “with the woman” and that’s exactly where you’ll find us ~ with you whenever you need us.
A Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) is an advanced registered nurse practitioner who holds a master’s of science degree or doctorate degree and is board-certified to practice midwifery by the American Midwifery Certification Board. In the state of New Hampshire, CNM’s are licensed by the Board of Nursing as advanced practice registered nurses and can make diagnoses, prescribe medication, and provide treatment. At St. Joseph Hospital Midwifery, we feel that midwifery is both a science and an art. Our midwives are experienced at blending traditional medical and pharmaceutical treatments with complementary treatments to meet your unique needs.
“Excellent, professional, and considerate care. I can’t say enough positive things about this practice. The midwives were friendly, knowledgeable, and kind with my prenatal care and were instrumental during my labor and delivery practice. I don’t know if I could have done it without them!” – Deborah A.
Our team of certified nurse midwives look forward to partnering with you for all of your obstetric and gynecological health care needs.
