UVA Midwifery supports and empowers women to choose their own care plans during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. At UVA Midwifery, women can plan to have a natural birth with the knowledge that medical care, if needed, is close by and available at all times. 

UVA Midwifery’s board-certified nurse midwives provide unique, nurturing, hands-on care during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum. Midwives also develop trusting relationships with mothers and their families. This results in positive birth outcomes and confident, supported labors and deliveries. 

Midwives encourage shared decision-making so that moms can feel informed and empowered to make their own health decisions for themselves, their babies, and their families. At UVA Midwifery, the team delivers individualized care that addresses each mother’s mental, emotional, physical, and social needs.

Midwives also provide care for women during the postpartum healing period, providing care and support in the weeks and months following childbirth. As mothers adjust to having a new baby in the home, midwives offer support, education, and help as the family dynamic changes.
