At St. Petersburg General Hospital, we respect a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions. This is why we maintain a comprehensive suite of services in our women’s center, including the services of certified nurse midwives (CNM). All of the nurse midwives in our birthing center have received extensive training in all aspects of women’s healthcare. When you choose to work with one of our nurse midwives, you’ll gain so much more than the midwife’s expertise during labor and delivery.
Nurse midwives provide a continuum of care for women by monitoring health during pregnancy, and offering supportive care during labor and delivery. Nurse midwives listen to your unique concerns and give you the healthcare information you need to make an informed decision for your wellness. Nurse midwives also provide follow-up care after the birth, evaluating the wellness of your baby and guiding you through the healing process. In addition, nurse midwives provide ongoing support to women with healthcare counseling on all aspects of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
If you feel that working with a nurse midwife is the right choice for you, visit the birthing center at St. Petersburg General Hospital. For general information about our birthing center in St. Petersburg, give us a call at (888) 741-5122.
