What Do Midwives Do?

Midwives are board-certified healthcare providers who received a graduate degree in midwifery. They provide care through healthy, uncomplicated pregnancies and can provide all standard gynecologic care. They work alongside our obstetrician–gynecologists and maternal–fetal medicine specialists, who provide high-risk pregnancy care and can perform surgeries such as a cesarean birth and hysterectomy.

Pregnancy Care from Midwives

Our midwives provide care before, during, and after pregnancy, including childbirth. Your midwife works with you on your birth plan, helping to define your ideal childbirth experience. For some people this includes minimal intervention in the childbirth process, such as not inducing labor or providing medical pain management only when necessary. We offer wireless fetal monitoring so you can walk around and change positions while in labor. We also aim to make you as comfortable as possible by allowing you to eat as needed and limiting physical exams during active labor.

Midwives attend births at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn. They work in tandem with the rest of the labor and delivery team, which includes obstetricians and maternal–fetal medicine specialists, to ensure you have access to the highest level of patient care. This can include unplanned surgical interventions such as a cesarean birth, or treatment of any complications that occur during delivery.

Gynecologic Care from Midwives

Midwives also provide all routine gynecologic care for women of all ages, from adolescence to those in their postreproductive years. This includes well visits, pelvic exams, and placement of long-acting reversible contraceptives such as intrauterine devices. Midwives also diagnose and treat gynecologic conditions, provide preventive care and screenings for cancer and sexually transmitted infections, and provide perimenopause and menopause care.
