Midwives of Macon

Midwives of Macon is middle Georgia's premier 24/7 midwifery service.

The term "midwife" literally means "with woman". Midwives are highly trained and skilled healthcare professionals who focus on providing women with quality care throughout their lifetimes. Nurse-midwives are nurses who go on to complete graduate degrees in nursing and midwifery. Their practice includes the management of women's healthcare needs from adolescence through menopause, with a special focus on normal pregnancy and birth. Midwives practice within a collaborative agreement with OB/GYN physicians and surgeons in order to provide women the best care possible in the event surgery or other services are needed.
