Our Certified Nurse Midwives encourage women to be an active part in their labor and delivery process.

Regional One Health provides expectant mothers the low-intervention care of a midwife while having access to the emergency services and technological expertise a hospital delivery ensures. Our midwives work closely with our physicians to deliver quality care.

In addition to delivering babies in the hospital, our midwife team sees patients the Hollywood and South Third primary care clinics Monday through Friday for low-risk obstetrics and well-woman primary care.

Certified Nurse Midwives at Regional One Health work with expectant mothers to create a unique plan. Midwives are there to serve as advocates and friends to expectant mothers through the whole process.

Our  Certified Nurse Midwives are defined as primary care providers under federal law and are licensed, independent health care providers with prescriptive authority in all 50 states. Because of this, if they are in your insurance network, their fees are covered.

No, at this time, Regional One Health does not offer water birth services.

You don’t need both. Certified Nurse Midwives are primary care providers under federal law with prescriptive authority in all 50 states. They provide women’s services such as primary care, gynecologic, family planning services, pregnancy care, childbirth, the postpartum period, and newborn care during the first 28 days of life.

One of the many positives about Regional One Health’s midwives working in a hospital setting is patients have access to epidurals if requested and all the labor support afterward.

Emergencies can arise during delivery. Regional One Health is the only hospital in Shelby County that staffs Certified Nurse Midwives as part of its OB/GYN team, giving expectant mothers the safety net of a hospital setting.
