Women's Maternity Health Center
Pregnancy Care and More
Most medical experts agree that mothers-to-be benefit greatly from prenatal care. In fact, women who visit their health care provider regularly during pregnancy have healthier babies, are less likely to deliver prematurely and are less likely to have other serious medical problems related to pregnancy. To help ensure you receive proper prenatal care, Saint Vincent Hospital's Women's Health Center offers both prenatal and well-woman gynecologic care.
The Health Center is staffed by Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs) who have collaborative relationships with Ob/Gyn specialists at Saint Vincent Hospital. CNMs are registered nurses who successfully complete an accredited graduate education program and pass a national certification exam. CNMs provide women’s health care throughout life, from adolescence through menopause. Your midwife will provide you with individualized care guided by evidence-based practices that have been tested and proven successful.
At the Women’s Health Center, we offer:
- Pregnancy tests and/or testing to confirm how far along the pregnancy is
- Physical exams to evaluate the health status of the mother and baby
- Prenatal, delivery and postpartum care with a CNM
- Nutrition counseling and other related support services as needed
- STI screening/treatment
- Well-woman health care
Help Is Available
