MGH Charlestown HealthCare Center Doctors




Our nurse-midwives are certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board and hold master’s degrees in nursing, midwifery, science or public health. At Mass General, you can choose a nurse-midwife to care for you throughout your low- or moderate-risk pregnancy and birth. Midwives view pregnancy and birth as a normal life event that can be a healthy time in your life. Our nurse-midwives will also meet you when triaging obstetric hospital visits and phone calls or when providing family planning services.
