Personalized pregnancy and newborn care

If you’ve been researching birthing centers or home births, a midwife is a wonderful option to have a home-like birth experience with the comfort of hospital services should you need them.

Midwives provide comprehensive perinatal care starting before pregnancy through labor and delivery into the first phase of the postpartum period.

At Intermountain Health, our midwives deliver babies in a hospital or birth center and not at home. Our connected hospital system makes it possible for you to have more choices when it comes to your birth experience, and doctors are available to consult with our midwifery team 24 hours a day.

If your pregnancy is considered high-risk, we’ll collaborate with our OB-GYN team to determine the safest and healthiest way to manage your care.
