About Our Midwifery Services
An integral part of BID Plymouth's Obstetrics team, our certified nurse-midwives offer well-woman care for women of all ages from adolescence through menopause. Teens come for a "non-exam" appointment to learn about menstrual periods and birth control options. Women come for birth control checkups, pap smears, and grow with us into their childbearing years. The relationship that you treasure during your pregnancies may continue even after you have had all of your babies. Women frequently choose to have their annual gynecological exam with the midwives that attended their births.
Nurse-midwives collaborate with the obstetricians, women's health nurse practitioners, and physician assistants to provide you with a wealth of options for prenatal care and birth choices. Our philosophy is centered around listening to women when they voice concerns and express desires for their birth experiences.
We provide bedside support as you labor and offer the least amount of intervention that is appropriate for your particular pregnancy. We offer water labor and birth to low-risk women. We also support women in their choices for pain medication and epidural anesthesia.
