What Does A Midwife Do?

Midwives take care of pregnant women and assist in their labor, birth and postpartum care. They also provide general care services like routine exams, gynecological care, treating menopausal symptoms, managing abnormal pap smears, preparing for birth, pregnancy and postpartum care.
A nurse midwife is a registered nurse who is board certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives and trained in an accredited midwifery program.

My Midwives’ care services includes:

  • Gynecological exams
  • Family planning
  • Preconception care
  • Prenatal care
  • Labor and delivery support
  • Newborn care
  • Assistance with family planning
  • Menopausal management

Dr. Ilona Blumberg offers additional services of reproductive education in fertility, nutrition, exercise, contraception, pregnancy health, and breastfeeding. Midwives work with you while keeping in mind your preferences, cultural values, and personal likes and offer emotional and social support during the birth process.

What Are The Benefits Of Working With A Certified Nurse Midwife?

Certified midwives have the experience and the skill to monitor you and your baby throughout the pregnancy and manage a smooth delivery.

Certified nurse midwives deliver more than 10 in one baby every year in the US. In case of high-risk pregnancy or complications, they possess the clinical experience to take action or refer you to a doctor, as the case might be.

Some pregnancy complications include:

  • Preterm delivery
  • Mother having fever during childbirth
  • Using forceps or vacuum during delivery
  • Twins
  • Preeclampsia
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Gestational hypertension

Midwives routinely consult with obstetricians, perinatologists, and other healthcare professionals, regarding the mother and the child’s health. In case of complications, they work with specialized medical professionals to ensure a safe delivery.

The concept of getting midwife support has evolved over the years. Midwives are not just for crunchy-type moms who want things to flow naturally. Also, mothers who prefer natural birth might want midwives, but that doesn’t mean it would not involve any pain management or drug-free childbirth.

Note: For a woman who has a high-risk pregnancy and/or if complications arise, we recommend selecting a hospital environment under the specialized care of obstetricians, perinatologists, and other professionals trained to address such situations.

According to the American College of Nurse-Midwives, the benefits of good midwife care are:

  • Reduced risk of a cesarean
  • Lower rates of labor induction and augmentation
  • Decrease in use of regional anesthesia
  • Lower infant mortality rates
  • Decreased risk of preterm birth
  • Reduced third and fourth-degree perineal tears
  • Better chances of a positive start to breastfeeding
  • Greater satisfaction with the quality of care

She really made it a special experience for my fiancé & I. They’ve always made me feel comfortable and reassured me during my pregnancy. I cant begin to thank them enough for making my pregnancy & delivery a wonderful experience.”

Skyler D.

“Doctor Ellman is the most caring OBGYN I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing. I’ve had debilitating pain for many many years related to my period. Dr Ellman helped me find the cause and made a plan of treatment after many failed attempts. You can tell he cares for his patients and wants to do whatever he can to help and this applies to his staff as well. I’m thankful that I found Dr Ellman and his team.”

“I met Dr. Ellman in 2018 when I found out I was pregnant for the first time. I was nervous and excited and the same time. Dr. Ellman explains the birthing process in the lamest of terms and I felt so comfortable with him. Anytime I had a question everyone was so helpful and the energy was so welcoming and the whole office is so knowledgeable. Best experience ever being a first time mom. Would recommend to everyone I know. I still to this day 4 years later use Dr. Ellman as my OBGYN.”
