Note: The Center for Family Health and Richmond Community Hospital offer outpatient birthing classes and support only. Birthing centers are not available at these two facilities.

Female OB-GYNs

Women often have a preference in the gender of their health care providers. At our hospitals, we have both male and female OB-GYNs available.

Certified Nurse-Midwives

Certified nurse-midwives, or CNMs, are licensed health care practitioners educated in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery. Most were nurses first, and then went back for a master's degree in nurse-midwifery. CNMs provide primary care to women of childbearing age,including prenatal care, labor and delivery care, care after birth, gynecological exams, newborn care, assistance with family planning decisions, preconception care, menopausal management and counseling in health maintenance and disease prevention.

At Bon Secours, CNMs practice with physicians so that the full range of care is available to women at all times.

Doula Services

The word "doula" refers to an experienced woman who helps women during labor, delivery and/or the post-delivery period. The doula provides the mother with physical and emotional support along with her partner. Although fathers play a vital support role, sometimes additional help isneeded. With a doula, a father can share in the birth at the level where he is most comfortable. The doula’s skills and knowledge can help him to feel more relaxed and to participate as much as he wishes in the birth, assuring the mother of full labor support at all times. Doulas working with Bon Secours-affiliated providers and with our parents are welcome at all Bon Secours hospitals.
