Certified nurse midwives offer assistance with childbirth and other women's health services at LDS Hospital.

Not just any midwife can provide care in our hospital. All of our certified nurse midwives are registered nurses with years of specialized training and a masters degree in nurse-midwifery. Each have met national certification requirements, including a national board examination and have met Utah's healthcare provider licensing requirements.

Our Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) provide a variety of health services to women of all ages, including:

  • Providing care and assistance with labor and childbirth
  • Providing other women's health services, such as assisting women through life changes associated with menopause

CNMs provide care and assistance with childbirth, including:

  • Prenatal care in an office setting
  • Assistance with labor and delivery during childbirth
    • All births take place in the hospital with physician consultation when necessary
    • Patients may choose pain-relieving medications, epidural anesthesia, or natural childbirth
  • Postpartum and contraceptive care after delivery, including follow-up care at two and six weeks after the birth 

Certified nurse midwives are advanced practice nurses who are able to provide full care to women before, during and after pregnancy. The care provided includes prescribing medications and ordering epidural anesthesia for pain relief during labor, if needed.

Should an at-risk situation develop, nurse midwives work closely with doctors in Maternal-Fetal Medicine to assure the highest quality of care for the new mother and her baby.

Other women's health services provided  include:

  • Family planning (contraception) services
  • Yearly screening exams, including pap smears and breast exams
  • Menopausal counseling and system management options
  • Treatment of vaginal and bladder infections

Certified nurse midwives offer a free consultation visit that gives you an opportunity to meet with one of the providers for further information and to ask questions. They also offer free pregnancy tests with no appointment.
