T he Division of Nurse Midwifery Services at University Physicians is dedicated to providing women with the personalized health care experience that they deserve. A Certified Nurse Midwife is a registered nurse who has completed graduate level training in midwifery and is certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board. Our goal is to develop strong, trusting relationships with our patients helping them to become active participants in their health – during their pregnancy and throughout their lives.

We attend births at New Hanover Regional Medical Center, providing our patients with bedside support, information, and options from hydrotherapy to epidurals, to help them achieve the birth experience they desire. We have a very low induction and cesarean section rate. Our team of midwives can collaborate with obstetricians and other healthcare professionals to provide you with comprehensive care.

Though we are known for our prenatal care, we are committed to the lifelong health of our patients and provide preventive healthcare, family planning, and annual exams for women of all ages. Our Certified Nurse Midwives have the only all-female provider practice in the region. We are in the office five days a week and same day appointments are available.
