As advanced practice nurses, nationally certified and licensed by the state of Illinois, we offer safe, compassionate, and holistic healthcare.  While caring for pregnant women and attending birth are one important focus, we attend women at all stages of life.

Services include: 

- annual exams: pap smear, HPV test, infection testing/treatment

We support choice in birth.  Births are attended in a hospital setting including the alternative birth center (ABC) experience, offering a large private room to accommodate family, queen-sized bed, water therapy, and water birth.  For women who desire or require medical pain management, or if a complication arises during the course of labor, the midwives continue to stay with you and attend your birth in the labor and delivery rooms on the same hospital floor. 

Thanks to the excellent support of collaborating physicians we are also able to provide vaginal birth after Cesarean section (VBAC) for appropriate clients.   

Please call our office to schedule an appointment for a gynecological or prenatal appointment.
