At Abrazo Arrowhead Campus, we want to empower every expectant mother with an experience that is safe, happy, and healthy and our comprehensive care model includes options for midwifery services. Many women choose midwives because they prefer a highly personalized approach to pregnancy, birth, and women’s health care.

Why Choose a Midwife?
The Abrazo Arrowhead Campus nurse-midwives are highly-trained experts in women's health and obstetrics. Many women choose midwives because they prefer a highly tailored approach to pregnancy, birth, and women’s health care. Our midwives regularly collaborate with obstetrician-gynecologists (OB/GYNs), neonatologists and other medical professionals.
