About Midwifery

We support patients in choosing their own care plans during pregnancy and birth. That’s why at UVA Midwifery, you can plan to have a natural birth but know that medical care, if needed, is close at hand. Our board-certified nurse midwives:

  • Provide uniquely nurturing, hands-on care before, during and after birth
  • Develop trusting relationships with patients and their families, resulting in confident, supported labor and birth
  • Encourage shared decision-making so patients feel informed and empowered to make health decisions for themselves, their infants and their families
  • Deliver individualized care to address psychological and social needs
  • Provide postpartum care and support in the weeks and months after birth, as patients  adjust to their new babies and changes in their families
