Franciscan Women’s Health at Virginia Mason is Your Partner in Pregnancy
Expecting a child is one of the most exciting and rewarding times in a woman’s life. Our goal is to guide you through a healthy and safe pregnancy, and help make your birth experience joyfully and distinctively yours. We provide expert care for both general and high-risk pregnancies. From birth planning to breastfeeding support, our focus is you — and your healthy baby.
Our expert providers offer attentive, compassionate care. For superior personalized support, you choose your preferred provider type:
Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OB/GYN) – A physician who specializes in all aspects of the medical and surgical care of women, including preventive care, pregnancy, delivery, menopause management and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) – An advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) who has completed 2-3 years of extra training after nursing school, including graduate-level education, training and certification in midwifery. CNMs treat and manage normal and healthy pregnancy and delivery, providing support throughout the labor process. They can prescribe a full range of medications and treatments, including pain control medications. CNMs also manage routine gynecological care across a woman’s lifetime, including general health checkups, well-woman gynecologic care, and more.
Our providers work collaboratively to ensure your best care in any situation that may arise.
