Nurse-Midwives

Nurse-midwives at the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology provide midwifery care to women having a low- or moderate-risk pregnancy and birth. Some midwives provide prenatal care in an assigned office location and all of our midwives provide care by triaging hospital visits and phone calls and by attending births on the labor floor at Mass General.
