Obstetrics & Midwifery
With over 100 combined years of physician experience and over 30,000 deliveries, the physicians and staff at Northwest OB-GYN are dedicated to providing expert personalized and comprehensive care for all types of pregnancies, including low risk and high risk complicated pregnancies.
Family-Centered Obstetrical Care
Family-centered obstetrical care means that husbands/partners are encouraged to participate in prenatal visits, and are involved in intensive preparation for labor and delivery. Their presence and active participation during the pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum course is encouraged. This provides you with an overwhelmingly satisfying obstetrical experience for the whole family.
While here at Northwest OB-GYN, you can expect to see your primary doctor or midwife and their staff members throughout your pregnancy. The physicians and midwives deliver at Sacred Heart Medical Center Birth Place. If you are expecting a child, let us partner with you on this wonderful journey into parenthood.
Northwest Midwives, a division of Northwest OB-GYN, is a full scope nurse-midwifery service providing obstetrical care including prenatal, birth, and postpartum services for low-risk pregnancies. They also provide gynecological care including family planning and basic well-woman care.
