Women are unique in many ways, very much like IHA Nurse Midwives.
IHA is pleased to welcome our certified nurse midwife practice. This practice not only offers comprehensive prenatal and childbirth services, but also provides the entire spectrum of well-woman gynecological care. With a focus on wellness education, our midwives are committed to enhancing a woman’s self-reliance and trust in her normal life process.
IHA Nurse Midwives practice evidence-based medicine in comprehensive women’s health care, from preconception counseling, obstetrical and gynecologic services, normal labor management and vaginal deliveries.
Nurse midwives are registered nurses who have graduated from a nurse-midwifery education program accredited by the American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM) and have passed a national certification examination to receive the professional designation of certified nurse-midwife. Nurse-midwives have been practicing in the United States since the 1920s.

The services include:
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Pap smears
- Breast and pelvic examinations
- Referrals for mammograms
- Menopausal and post-menopausal care
