A certified nurse midwife is a trained medical professional who specializes in caring for women from adolescence through menopause and beyond. This care includes supporting women through pregnancy and childbirth, providing well-woman care, contraception including placement of IUDs, and other minor gynecological procedures. Women in the Tampa Bay area, who wish to have a midwife assisted birth experience – or who wish to have a certified nurse midwife as their primary gynecological care provider – can turn to Florida Medical Clinic Orlando Health OBGYN and Midwifery.

At Florida Medical Clinic Orlando Health OBGYN and Midwifery, certified nurse midwives and our OBGYN Physician, Dr. Patel, work together to provide high-quality, patient-centered care for all women, providing options throughout their pregnancy.

We understand that there are many reasons that a woman might prefer to obtain her obstetrical care from a midwife, and we support our patients in making safe, informed decisions for themselves and their families. Our midwives and Dr. Patel attend deliveries at AdventHealth Tampa, where we believe we can provide the best care possible to our mothers and families.

We are committed to helping each patient have a healthy pregnancy and an empowering experience that aligns with her individual wishes, whether that includes:

  • Confirming a healthy pregnancy
  • Limited interventions
  • Immediate skin-to-skin contact and delayed cord clamping
  • Pain medications (including epidurals)
  • Detecting birth defects and pregnancy complications
