Frequently Asked Questions

How are nurse-midwives different than physicians?
Nurse-midwives and obstetricians (physicians) are both equally qualified to provide care throughout pregnancy and birth. Aside from their different educational backgrounds, nurse-midwives are trained holistically in all things related to pregnancy and women’s health, but don’t perform C-sections or other major surgeries. Nurse-midwives also provide a Centering Pregnancy treatment option that physicians do not as an alternative to traditional individual visits.

However, at Shenandoah Women’s Healthcare, all our practitioners work collaboratively, so if you need a C-section, your nurse-midwife can continue to treat you with the assistance of a physician.

What is a “certified” nurse-midwife?
A certified nurse-midwife (CNM) is an advanced practice registered nurse in nurse midwifery. A CNM has an advanced degree and must pass a series of exams to receive the certification. A certified nurse-midwife has extensive knowledge of pregnancy, birthing, and overall women’s healthcare.
