Midwife Care

MultiCare's Certified Nurse-Midwives expand on the "traditional" pregnancy and OB/GYN care offered by our OB/GYN and Family Medicine providers. Midwives typically offer a more holistic approach to labor and delivery, all within the safety of a hospital setting. They also provide annual gynecological exams, menopause management, general women’s health care, family planning and pre-conception counseling. Learn more about our Midwife care.
