Can I See a Midwife if I'm Not Pregnant?

Certified Nurse Midwives, or CNMs, are Registered Nurses with graduate education in Midwifery. Meaning they provide reproductive/sexual health care from menarche (first menstrual period) to post-menopause (last menstrual period). This includes prenatal care, labor and birth, postpartum care, lactation support, basic newborn care, annual exams, pap smears, birth control (including IUDs and implants), breast exams, basic primary care, and preventative health care. They also diagnose and treat vaginal infections, sexually transmitted infections, infertility, irregular periods, and pelvic pain.

In our society, many health care services are offered as one-size-fits-all. Choosing a midwife offers you a chance for expert personalized care based on research and evidence. Midwifery care does not rely on providing a specific set of childbirth procedures or practices for all women. Instead, midwives tailor care to meet the needs and wants of each woman and her baby. With this approach, midwives maintain the best conditions possible for a safe and healthy outcome for all involved. 

When considering a Midwife who will best meet your needs, take the time to think about your healthcare goals. What do you want most out of your health care experience? What do you value? Midwives have the education and experience to tailor your health care plan based on current research and what you value most in your care.
