Certified nurse midwives (CNMs) have been providing women’s health care and gynecological services through the UTMB Health’s Regional Women’s Services and Pediatrics for over 20 years. While nurse midwives are well known for working
along-side women desiring natural or low intervention approaches to pregnancy and delivery, they are also skilled at providing a wide range of obstetric, gynecologic, and family planning services using a patient-centered approach to care. UTMB
Health certified nurse midwives have the ability to perform lab work, order ultrasounds, provide pain relief in labor, prescribe contraception, and treat minor gynecological issues. Our nurse midwives understand that women have a choice in their
care and work hard to provide both clinic and delivery services in a respectful and meaningful way to all the women we serve.
Each certified nurse midwife is a Texas licensed advanced practice nurse with graduate level training in women’s health and obstetrical care. While some midwives work at home or a birth center, the UTMB nurse midwives provide care at our Regional Women’s Services and Pediatrics clinics and deliver babies at John Sealy Hospital in Galveston. This arrangement allows the nurse midwives to work closely with obstetricians, gynecologists, maternal fetal medicine specialists, pediatricians, and neonatologists to ensure patients have access
to the highest level of care if necessary.
Certified nurse midwives at UTMB Health are located in our clinics in Pasadena, Texas City, Dickinson, Beaumont, and Galveston. To schedule an appointment at a location convenient for you, please call our Galveston clinic at (409) 747-4952.
