The Midwife Difference

The board-certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) on staff at Swedish Covenant Hospital empower women to be involved in their health care through education, communication and a strong relationship. Specializing in pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and well-woman care — our nurse-midwives on staff pride themselves on being your partner through it all.

Certified nurse-midwives are:

  • Specialists in women's health, normal pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care. 
  • Registered advanced practice nurses with specific training in obstetrics and gynecology.
  • Certified (accredited) by the American College of Nurse-midwives after passing a thorough board examination. 
  • Educated professionals who work alongside physicians in a variety of settings, primarily hospitals and clinics.
  • Focused on informed consent regarding your health care and catering to your specific needs.
At Swedish Covenant Hospital, we are proud to support a group practice of nurse-midwives, who work in conjunction with board-certified obstetricians, to provide you with personalized care and education. They see patients in a group office and deliver babies in our state-of-the-art facility, the Family Birthing Center.

The nurse-midwifery group at Swedish Covenant Hospital prides itself on developing a partnership with you through a holistic approach to your health and open communication. By treating you as a partner in your health — whether that's the birth of your child or routine women's health care — nurse-midwives foster a supportive and empowering atmosphere.

Services include:

  • Prenatal Care
  • Annual exams
  • Family planning
