Greenville Midwifery Care

Caring for women … for life

We are a practice of certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) and offer full-scope midwifery services to our clients within a system that allows easy access to more specialized care when needed. CNMs are registered nurses who have graduated from an accredited midwifery education program and passed a national certification exam. In South Carolina, CNMs must have a master’s degree and are licensed through the South Carolina Board of Nursing.

CNMs provide primary care for women across their lifespan. Midwives care for women from adolescence through menopause, with a special emphasis on pregnancy, childbirth, and gynecologic and reproductive health.

Midwives perform comprehensive physical exams and prescribe medications, including contraception. CNMs provide high-quality and compassionate care for expectant mothers and women of all ages, including …

  • Prenatal and postpartum care
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Family planning and contraception
  • Well-woman gynecology exams
  • Preconception counseling

Our care philosophy

The CNMs of Greenville Midwifery Care & Birth Center support the philosophy of the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM). In particular, we believe that culturally competent, family-centered midwifery care should be available to women from a variety of ethnicities, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.

We honor the normalcy of women’s life-cycle events. We believe in …

  • Watchful waiting and non-intervention in normal birth process
  • Appropriate use of interventions and technology for current or potential health problems
  • Consultation and collaboration with other members of the health care team as needed to provide optimal health care

We believe every woman has the right to …

  • Equitable, ethical, accessible quality health care that promotes healing and health
  • Health care that respects human dignity, individuality and diversity
  • Complete and accurate information to make informed health care decisions
  • Self-determination and active participation in health care decisions
  • Involvement of a woman’s designated family members, to the extent desired, in all health care experiences
