As trained medical professionals, certified nurse midwives provide care, education, counseling and support to women and newborns during their pregnancy, delivery and the postpartum period. Midwives also provide well-woman care and preventative health services for women.
At OB/GYN Associates, the certified nurse midwifes work collaboratively with the physicians in the practice. This allows easy access to consultations and surgical care for their patients when necessary.
OB/GYN Associates advocates the option for certified midwifery care for its patients and was the first group in Erie to add a CNM to its staff.
Our practice now has five nurse midwives:
- Kim Bennett, who delivers babies at Magee-Womens Hospital, UPMC Hamot
- Peg Boyd, Heather Mozdy, Kaara Matkovich, and Julie Schwab who deliver at Saint Vincent Hospital, a member hospital of the Allegheny Health Network
