What is A Midwife?
The word midwife has been used for centuries to describe someone who is “with women” at birth. A midwife was traditionally an older female in the family or the community. Today, the individuals who hold that title are highly educated professionals who work collaboratively with physicians.
Midwives recognize and hold sacred the normalcy of pregnancy, birth, and the changes unique to a woman’s life cycle. They advocate for minimization of interventions while providing hands-on, woman centered care.
The midwives at Desert Blossom Women’s Care are certified nurse-midwives (CNMs). CNMs receive Master’s level education in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery, and are nationally certified according to the requirements of the American College of Nurse Midwives. In Arizona, CNMs are licensed to practice independent management of women’s health care, focusing particularly on pregnancy and gynecological needs of women of all ages.
CNMs consult, collaborate, or refer with other members of the healthcare team based on the health needs of each client. Our CNMs have a unique relationship with collaborating obstetricians which means all pregnant women, regardless of risk status, can receive midwifery care.
Desert Blossom has exceptional midwives and providers for women’s health! They have excellent bedside manner, very informative, and most importantly- I feel comfortable asking them any question regarding my health and care. I will continue to recommend Desert Blossom to friends and family. You’ll be in great hands!- Ramsey G.
Our midwives provide safe and gentle care for your gynecologic needs. We take the time to listen to you and work with you to develop a plan that is customized for you. In addition to performing routine preventative wellness care, we can also evaluate and treat a variety of diseases and conditions affecting women.
Our goal is to help you have the pregnancy and birth experience that is right for you. We are skilled at offering hands on labor support to women desiring unmedicated birth, and will support you if you choose an epidural. Every woman and her family deserves the personalized, safe, and respectful care our midwives offer.
Starting a family is very exciting. For some women, though, pregnancy can be a time full of anxiety. If you’re an expectant mother who’s worried about complications or other problems in your pregnancy, our partnership with the maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) specialist physicians at Valley Perinatal Services can help.
MFM physicians (also called perinatologists) not only serve as highly trained experts but also as trusted advisors and advocates for the mother during her high-risk pregnancy. The perinatologist knows how to use advanced tools and technologies to determine the precise health conditions and implement the best approach to ensure the success of the pregnancy.
Diabetes education for my pregnancy was wonderful. They provided tools and education to track my glucose. I’m glad that I got to work with them to help my gestational diabetes and pregnancy.- Heather A.
