The Midwife Center for Birth and Women’s Health in the Strip District offers prenatal care, childbirth and gynecological care to women of all ages. The center’s goal is to provide safe and satisfying care that is personalized to meet women’s needs. Staff are guided by the philosophy that women should be in control of their own health care, including their birth experiences.
The center’s certified nurse-midwives (CNMs), who are registered nurses with additional education in midwifery, can take care of women for their entire pregnancy. The center’s building has three comfortable, nature-themed birth suites in which women can have their babies. We welcome any friends, family members or doulas women want with them. The center can also help women have their babies at the center’s primary referral hospital, UPMC Mercy.
The center’s nurse-midwives offer support to help women breastfeed and prenatal classes. The midwives and nurse practitioner also provide annual exams and pap tests, starting or continuing birth control, testing for sexually-transmitted infections and more. The center takes most private and public insurance plans. Learn more at www.midwifecenter.org.
