Nurse Midwifery Services

At Dignity Health in Arizona, we believe that nurse-midwives are experts in natural childbirth. It is our goal to educate every mother-to-be and her loved ones about childbirth options so that they can actively participate in the decision making process.

St. Joseph’s nurse-midwives offer personalized attention during the birthing process in the safety of the hospital for those who desire a natural childbirth experience. Our nurse-midwives are on staff and in-house day and night from Monday through Friday, and on call during weekends and holidays.

Several of our nurse-midwives at Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert, are also members of Valley OB-GYN physician practices.  They provide the alternative of a more natural birth experience, education and personalized attention during the labor process in the safety of a hospital.
