The certified nurse-midwives of BirthCare & Women’s Health work with healthy women during their childbearing years. We are registered nurses who have expanded our education in normal obstetric and gynecology through intensive graduate nurse-midwifery programs.

We are certified through the American Midwifery Certification Board and are members of theĀ American College of Nurse-Midwives. We are licensed to practice midwifery in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. We have Clinical Practice Guidelines and a system in place should the need arise for consultation, collaboration, or referral to other members of the health care team.

We are experienced through years of working in hospital home birth and birth center midwifery, maternal-child health, family planning, and childbirth education.
