Know Your Birthing Options
It is wonderful to have options, regarding how, where and with whom we give birth. In Northern Virginia we have many choices and there is no “one size fits all” perfect choice, as each family is unique. In addition to the traditional obstetrician-attended, in-hospital birth, here are some of the additional options available.
Our Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) are legally certified to practice in all settings. Clinic CNM’s carry licenses to prescribe most medicines and work in collaboration with physicians in case of complications. CNM’s work within guidelines and limitations regarding their scope of practice (for example, twins, breech, and high risk cases). CNM’s are certified in ultrasound, assisting on C/Sections, and carry nurse-practitioner licenses in Virginia.
