Our Certified Nurse Midwives, provide care to a culturally diverse population. Births take place at Trinitas Regional Medical Center, where obstetricians and neonatologists are in attendance at all times. Certified Midwives are an integral part of the Trinitas Regional Medical Center Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
