Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) are advanced practice nurses licensed by the State of Illinois. CNMs have post-graduate training in obstetrics and gynecology and have passed the national board-certification exam administered by the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
We are proud to support a group practice of nurse-midwives, who work in conjunction with board-certified obstetricians, to provide you with personalized care and education. They see patients in a group office and deliver babies in our state-of-the-art labor and delivery unit at Northwest Community Hospital.
All major insurances are accepted.
Women of all ages and life stages can experience excellent obstetrician and gynecologic care with certified nurse midwives on staff at Northwest Community Hospital. Through an interactive patient philosophy, certified nurse-midwives take time to talk, listen and educate you about preventive health, family medical history, diet and exercise, stress management and complementary treatments. These midwives are also trained in identifying high risk situations during both preconception care and antepartum care and will continue to co-manage many high risk situations. These high risk situations may include recurrent pregnancy loss, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, twin pregnancies and other conditions in a collaborative manner with their physician partners.
Our nurse-midwifery group prides itself on developing a partnership with you through a holistic approach to your health and open communication.
