Frequently Asked Questions about Midwifery Care
What is a Nurse Midwife?
Why should I choose a Nurse Midwife for my care?
Choosing a midwife can help you put your well-being at the forefront, as well as increase your chances of having a more personal, natural birth experience.
If I choose a nurse midwife for my birth, do I have to have a natural birth?
Nurse midwives are highly skilled in supporting natural unmedicated labor, however they have a full skillset of being able to support many different ways of birth.
Can I have a water birth with a Nurse Midwife?
Our Nurse Midwives deliver at the hospital and there are currently no hospitals in Alabama that support water birth.
We are able to provide support for water labor in a birthing tub at Crestwood Medical Center. Birthing people who desire water labor must hire a doula to provide tub rental.
