Women's Health Services

We partner with you to deliver care in a respectful manner. NFP certified nurse midwives guide healthy decisions to improve your quality of living. Heart disease and stroke are the two most common health problems for women. Causes include factors like age, ethnicity and family history, along with high blood pressure and cholesterol, obesity, lack of exercise, diabetes, and smoking. NFP nurse midwives, along with our family practice and behavioral health providers, work with you to address the factors you can control.

In addition to providing pregnancy, postpartum and miscarriage care and working with you to improve your overall health, NFP nurse midwives also provide:
