Midwife Services at Wellstar
Midwives are registered nurses who have received additional education and training in comprehensive
care for women.
While they may be associated with childbirth — and do support patients through every aspect of
labor and delivery
— they also offer personalized care for women through every phase of life.
Midwives collaborate with other members of a patient’s care team, including nurses and
to provide comprehensive care during birth. Whether the patient has a natural childbirth or a medically-assisted birth, midwives provide personalized, expert care and advocate for the patient.
Numerous studies have shown the highest quality comprehensive birth experiences come from a multidisciplinary treatment team of midwives and OB/GYNs supporting and caring for a mom together.
After the patient gives birth, midwives support patients through education on parenting topics such as
and newborn care.
