When it comes to your health, it's nice to have choices that are right for you at every stage of your life.
That's why MaineGeneral offers so many women's health services - including midwifery services.
Our midwifery services are provided by certified nurse-midwives (CNMs)
, advanced practice nurses with advanced education in women's health care and midwifery.
Certified nurse-midwives offer women special skills and an understanding of their unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Most CNMs are women who understand other women and what's important to them and their families.
Our CNMs take the time to get to know our patients as people and share who they are so patients feel comfortable talking to us about their concerns and joys.
We encourage patients to take an active role in their health care and welcome their questions. We take time not only to talk to patients but, more important, to listen.
We consider ourselves partners, working hand in hand with patients to make sure they receive personalized, high-quality care.
MaineGeneral Medical Center offers midwifery care at the Alfond Center for Health.
