If you have considered different childbirth options, you have likely searched for midwives in our area. At The Women’s Village of Mobile, our midwife has over 25-years’ experience as a labor and delivery nurse and is now excited to serve our community as a Certified Nurse Midwife.
Healthcare services a midwife may provide include:
Midwives are healthcare providers who deal with pregnancy, childbirth, newborn care and postpartum health. Some midwives provide routine reproductive care like pelvic exams, Pap tests, or counseling on birth control. Midwives tend to be more holistic and supportive of natural approaches to pregnancy and birth. People often choose a midwife when they know they want a non medicated birth or support for a medicated birth.
Midwives often work with ob/gyns in a hospital to ensure you have access to any care you need. A midwife is recommended when your pregnancy is low-risk or if you have only mild complications.
Pregnancy and labor are very personal experiences. You have a choice about the kind of care you would prefer. The Women’s Village of Mobile is proud to offer midwifery as a healthcare option.
A native Mobilian with over 25 years’ experience as a labor and delivery registered nurse, Kimberly realized her dream of becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife when she attended Frontier Nursing University, one of the nation’s premier midwifery universities. She is committed to improving women’s healthcare in our community by integrating evidence-based midwifery care, informed consent, and shared decision-making. Kimberly’s mission as a nurse midwife is to form lasting relationships with families, and advocate for those wanting natural childbirth free from fear and doubt. She understands that birth experiences are different for every person, and desires to support each one in every way possible!
