Midwife means "with woman"...and we are!

Pregnancy is a natural process...

Everyone deserves a safe and satisfying birth experience. In most cases, birth can occur with very little intervention. With a basis of extensive patient education and good communication between the family and the midwife, our clients are empowered to make decisions about their own care. Beyond birth, midwives care for women throughout their lifetime, providing holistic well woman care for all ages. Listening to our clients, caring for their needs, and providing a respectful and nurturing healthcare environment is what we do best.

We are dedicated to providing excellent care to all women and continue to accept commercial insurance (except BlueCross Network E), TennCare, CoverKids, and offer self pay options as well. We offer Spanish speaking staff and providers. Other translation services are available as needed.


We are excited to announce the opening of an additional Vanderbilt Nurse-Midwifery location for our patients to receive care. Midwives from both locations will deliver your baby at Vanderbilt Medical Center. The new location, which is in addition to our West End location, is in the Melrose/Berry Hill community and the planned opening date is November 9, 2015.
