Promise Community Health Center Midwife Care is centered on pregnancy and birth as normal life processes. The Promise Certified Nurse Midwives offer holistic care by identifying and respecting a woman’s physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. Midwives provide skilled care that is individualized to you and your pregnancy. Our practices are evidence-based, meaning we follow the most recent research to keep women and babies safe. Technological interventions are minimized and are evidence-based when used.
Our Midwives educate each woman to empower her during labor and delivery. Research indicates the woman-centered model of care offered by Midwives can reduce the incidence of birth trauma/injury and cesarean section. Midwives are trained to identify if obstetrical attention is needed and can make appropriate referrals.
Do you like the idea of midwife care, but prefer to deliver at a hospital? We will help manage your care from early pregnancy until approximately 35 weeks, at which time we will coordinate continued care with a provider at the facility where you desire to deliver your baby.

Taking care of yourself after baby is born is important! The emotional and physical care you receive during the postpartum period can affect you for the rest of your life. Part of taking care of yourself is scheduling a postpartum visit with a provider. At Promise Community Health Center, a postpartum appointment helps ensure your body is healing appropriately after vaginal or cesarean delivery. It also gives you the opportunity to discuss birth control options, breastfeeding, emotional concerns and any other concerns you have. Our midwives provide compassionate and comprehensive postpartum care, regardless of where you had your baby.
