Offering Women an Added Dimension of Care

The Exempla Certified Nurse-Midwives practice began providing prenatal care and delivery services to women in the Denver metro area in December 2003. We have provided high-quality, patient centered and culturally competent care in the clinic to over 5000 women since the practice opened.

Have your baby delivered by a nurse-midwife at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital involves more than just the delivery. A nurse-midwife is there to support and care for women, their partners and families from the early stages of pregnancy, through labor and delivery and into the first phase of post-partum care. Nurse-midwives are highly trained, multi-skilled healthcare professionals. With special training in women's health, she offers those in childbearing years a safe, sensitive and very personal alternative.

Our certified nurse-midwife practice provides a "customized birth plan" and supports YOUR delivery choices. If a baby is in your future, chances are you are already thinking about the birth experience. Choosing a nurse-midwife for your prenatal care and delivery is one way to assure this time is memorable for all the right reasons.
