“Childbirth is an experience in a woman’s life which, if entered into fully,
holds the power to transform her forever” - N.G.
West End Midwifery Services is a small private practice located in Richmond, Virginia. We are dedicated to providing personalized attention and care to the pregnant woman, her family, and the upcoming birt h.
Our services are comprehensive. They include: well woman, gynecology, menopause, prenatal visits, childbirth education, labor support, post-partum care, breastfeeding assistance, and Centering Pregnancy, a group prenatal program that provides benefits to moms and babies. We also have an onsite social worker available who can further assist you on this journey.
Our philosophy is hands-on labor support that encourages and promotes non-medicated natural childbirth using alternative methods and treatments. We have two board certified nurse-midwives (CNM) in the practice who attend deliveries at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital. We have two backup obstetricians, one who is an expert in breech deliveries. They are both experienced physicians skilled in the birthing of twins, VBACs, and are supportive of the midwifery model of care. Qualified doulas are available if needed or desired.
We believe in the importance of a strong relationship between the midwife and the birthing family. Our goal is to provide women-centered care that leads to a safe, healthy, and empowering birthing experience.
