Regional One Health supports expectant mothers looking for a non-traditional birth experience. We are the only hospital in Memphis that staffs Certified Nurse Midwives as part of our OB/GYN team.
Our Certified Nurse Midwives encourage women to be an active advocate in their labor and delivery process and are available to provide continuous support during this time.
Regional One Health provides the opportunity for expectant mothers to experience the low-intervention care of a midwife while having access to the emergency services and technological expertise a hospital delivery ensures. Our midwives follow evidence-based care guidelines. They work closely with our physicians to deliver quality care and partner with patients to evaluate interventions as necessary.
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.
Because they are licensed and certified health care professionals, our Certified Nurse Midwives provide a wide range of services to women of reproductive age, including:
- Preconception care
- Comprehensive prenatal care including optional group prenatal care
- Annual examinations
- Gynecological examinations
- Birth control counseling and management
- Breastfeeding education and support
- Labor support and management of vaginal deliveries
- Postpartum care
The Regional One Health team of midwives staff the hospital 24/7 so they’re always available for your needs. Regional One Health’s Certified Nurse Midwives are masters-prepared nurses with Registered Nurse (RN) and Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) licensures. They also are certified through the American Midwifery Board.
