Midwifery at Saratoga Hospital
Our certified nurse midwives provide family-centered, comprehensive care for women beginning at age 13 and throughout each stage of your health. Our compassionate, supportive approach encourages you to ask questions, make informed choices, and become an integral part of your own, personalized care.
Personalized care for women, from adolescence to postmenopause.
Our Saratoga Hospital Medical Group – Midwifery and Women’s Health Services team is made up of certified nurse midwives (CNMs) who are compassionate, skilled professionals providing personalized, comprehensive women’s healthcare through each stage of a woman’s life from adolescence to menopause. Among many other services, our CNMs prescribe medications, conduct well-woman annual exams, offer contraception consultations, perform endometrial biopsies, and provide treatments such as hormone replacement..
CNMs possess the necessary training to handle all aspects of a normal, low-risk pregnancy, from prenatal care through delivery and postpartum care. Our family-centered approach includes programs to support your entire family, working in collaboration with obstetrics services. Midwifery delivery has resulted in fewer cases of cesarean-section births, induced labor, forceps deliveries, perineal tears, and regional anesthesia.
