Meet the Midwives of Marin
March 15, 2015Posted by pamela |
Moms-to-be planning to deliver their babies at Marin General Hospital can take advantage of the hospital's and Prima Medical Group's Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) for prenatal, labor and delivery, and postnatal care.
A midwife is a trained professional with special expertise in pregnancy and delivery in low-risk, healthy women. The midwives at Marin General Hospital are all registered nurses with a MA in nursing or public health and are certified through the American College of Nurse-Midwives, which works in conjunction with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Marin General Hospital is in fact the only hospital in Marin or San Francisco that offers midwife services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you're interested, the hospital holds a series of one-hour informational meetings throughout the year. Midwives will share their philosophies and approaches, and review the services available when you choose to deliver your baby at Marin General Hospital.
An optional tour of Marin General Hospital Birth Center will follow the meeting. Partners, family, and friends are of course welcome. No fee or registration required. The next event will be held on Monday, April 6, 2015 from 7:15–8:15 pm, with an another event this fall on Monday, October 5.
All events are held in the Conference Center at Marin General Hospital. For more information call (415) 842-5107 or visit their website.
