Certified Nurse-Midwives in Southwest Virginia
“I wanted to have a natural birth and I developed such a reassuring bond with my certified nurse-midwife. She definitely removed any fears that I had throughout my pregnancy. I was so impressed with the amount of helpfulness and caring that I received during my labor and even after my delivery.” - Samantha
