At Mission Bernal Women’s Clinic, you have the option to choose a certified nurse-midwife. Our midwives not only deliver babies but can provide comprehensive care throughout your life, from routine gynecological exams and birth control to menopause support.
Nurse-midwives are certified as specialists and have undergone advanced training in low-risk pregnancy and childbirth. To maintain their certification, they must adhere to the rigorous practice standards set by the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
Nurse-midwives work collaboratively with doctors and other healthcare professionals. Although they do practice independently in many specialties, consulting with doctors is an important shared practice.
