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 is a registered nurse who has graduated from an advanced education program accredited by the American College of Nurse Midwives. At St. Joseph Hospital, we feel that midwifery is both a science and an art. Our CNMs are licensed by the state of New Hampshire. We are experienced at blending medical, pharmaceutical, technological, herbal and homeopathic treatments to meet your unique needs.

For first time parents, the thought of parenthood can be overwhelming. At St. Joseph Hospital, we offer a wide range of classes, consultations and support services to help ease those concerns and allow you care for your newborn with confidence.
