Women's health care how you want it.
Midwives have been around for centuries guiding women safely through pregnancy and childbirth. Midwife means "with woman"...with women from the beginning of pregnancy, through birth and beyond.
This tradition of women supporting women before, during and after childbirth is carried on through Certified Nurse Midwives at Marshfield Clinic Health System.
Our Midwives have been providing maternity and well-woman care since 1987, attending nearly 10,000 births and providing over 100 years of combined experience in women's health.
What is a Certified Nurse Midwife?
A Certified Nurse Midwife is a registered nurse with a master's degree in nurse midwifery. Certified Nurse Midwives pass a national exam that tests skills and knowledge in obstetrics, gynecology and newborn care.
The Health System's Certified Nurse Midwives are nationally certified to practice midwifery and licensed by Wisconsin to prescribe medications.
Midwives care for both uncomplicated pregnancies and some high-risk pregnancies. Should you encounter complications during your pregnancy or labor, our midwives collaborate closely with obstetricians.
