Mercy Clinics Midwifery

Having a nurse midwife present for your delivery is an option all women should have. It has been shown that having a nurse midwife attributes to low percentages of inductions, episiotomies and Caesarean sections.

That is why Mercy Clinics Midwifery is available for women with low-risk pregnancies, who are planning to deliver at Mercy. We are a hospital-based practice, but we also provide an outpatient clinic for pregnancy care.

We will honor your choice to have either a natural birth or the use of pain management. When you are admitted, a midwife will be present to deliver your baby and support you through the delivery. We work together with OB physicians and, if necessary, will include them in the delivery.
