Nurse midwives are advanced practice registered nurses who specialize in women's reproductive health and childbirth. They provide comprehensive care to women throughout their pregnancies, labor, delivery, and postpartum periods. In addition to managing normal pregnancies and deliveries, nurse midwives offer gynecological exams, family planning services, and prenatal education. They emphasize a holistic approach, supporting natural childbirth and empowering women through personalized care. Nurse midwives play a vital role in improving maternal and infant health outcomes, particularly in underserved communities, by combining clinical expertise with compassionate, patient-centered care.
