Midwifery

Certified Nurse-Midwives provide care to a generally healthy population with minor variations. The Midwifery Model of Care emphasizes respect, education, time, and bodily autonomy/consent.  We work collaboratively with physicians and specialists when your health needs require a higher level of care.

Philadelphia Midwife Collective accepts all major insurance plans and Keystone First Medicaid. Please contact us with any questions.
