Certified nurse midwives are an important part of the Capital Women’s Care team, working in tandem with our physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants to provide the highest quality medical care to all women. A Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) is educated in both nursing and midwifery, certified according to American Midwifery Certification Board requirements, and licensed through the state in which they work.

Choosing a healthcare provider is a highly personal decision. If you would like to discuss your gynecologic and prenatal care options, please contact Capital Women’s Care for a consultation.
