Midwifery Clinic

Our seven certified nurse-midwifes (CNM) are advanced practice nurses who provide prenatal care, deliver babies, and offer a range of well-women services. 

Prenatal and Childbirth Care

Our primary goal is to help you have a safe and healthy pregnancy, labor, and childbirth. During your pregnancy, your midwife will monitor you and your baby's health at each of your prenatal visit. Your midwife will answer questions and address problems, concerns, or emergencies. Our midwives work in collaboration with our physician team should any complications arise.

Key Benefits

  • Emphasize education about the pregnancy process
  • Offer a nurturing, woman-centered approach
  • Provide care in a hospital setting with immediate access to specialized care
  • Support minimal intervention during childbirth

You may schedule all your appointments with the same nurse-midwife, or you can rotate your appointments between all of the nurse-midwives.

Well-Woman Services

In addition to pregnancy care, our nurse-midwives see patients for routine physical exams, which may include a Pap smear and breast exam. They also provide general health counseling, treat women with common gynecologic concerns, and offer a range of contraceptive options such as birth control pills and IUDs.

Location

Our midwifery services are available for patients at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City and at UI Health Care - Iowa River Landing in Coralville.
