San Angelo Midwifery

For centuries, women have looked to midwives to advise and assist them in childbirth. Today, certified nurse midwives carry on the tradition of personal, family-centered healthcare. Midwifery at Shannon offers an alternative to traditional care for women and families.

What Is a Midwife?

A certified nurse midwife (CNM) is an individual educated in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery and who possesses evidence of certification according to the requirements of the American College of Nurse Midwives. Midwifery practice, as conducted by CNMs, is the independent management of women's healthcare, focusing particularly on pregnancy, childbirth, the postpartum period, family planning, and the gynecological needs of women. Practice is within a healthcare system that provides for consultation, collaborative management, or referral to a board-certified physician, as indicated by the health status of the client.

Shannon offers a full scope of care for healthy women. This includes complete prenatal and birth care, family planning, child spacing techniques, annual physical exams and pap tests, and treatment for minor gynecological conditions.

Babies are born at the Shannon Labor & Delivery Unit, where care is individualized to meet your personal needs. A physician is always available if complications arise during the birth process. If referral to a physician is necessary, the midwife is still available for supportive care.
