Orange Coast Women’s Medical Group is proud to offer midwifery services for women who are looking for minimally invasive prenatal care and a unique personal birthing experience.

The word midwife means, “with woman”. Our certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are experts in women’s health, providing support during pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. Their comprehensive care is dedicated to supporting the normal processes of childbirth to ensure the best possible birthing outcomes for mother and baby.

We believe our practice is unique in that we offer midwifery care for birth in the hospital setting. This affords us the advantage of also having our OCWMG physicians readily available to care for emergencies that may arise. They are very supportive of our midwifery practice and if they are needed to assist in your care, the midwives will remain with you through your birth so that you will always have a familiar person with you.

“Our goal is to work with you to achieve a healthy & rewarding pregnancy and childbirth”

If you are looking for midwives who will care for your unique needs with personal attention and expertise then you are in the right spot!
