We also are determined to provide evidenced based OB/GYN care for women throughout their lifetime. Our Certified Nurse-Midwives are highly trained and experienced in providing evidenced based care using the midwifery model which includes no intervention in the absence of complications. We as midwives educate our patients about their options, helping them to make informed decisions about their birth experiences, including medicated or unmedicated births. Should any deviation from a normal gynecological, pregnancy or birth experience arise, they collaborate with one of our highly skilled physicians and surgeons in order to provide the best care possible. Our patients have the option of seeing our midwives or our physicians for their prenatal and birth care and we are the only practice in middle Georgia offering 24/7 Nurse-Midwifery coverage for our patients. We support and encourage vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) for low risk women and offer hands on support for our mothers who choose to breastfeed. We look forward to providing women of middle Georgia quality obstetric and gynecology care.
