Make Appointments & Get Care


Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) are highly skilled professionals who have received formal training in primary care and women’s health from a nationally accredited program. Research shows that having midwifery care during pregnancy and labor can lead to:

  • Fewer births requiring surgery
  • Fewer interventions for mother and baby
  • Higher satisfaction rates

UR Medicine's Approach

We want to provide you with options, working to help you make the best decisions for you and your family.

What Sets Us Apart?

All of the midwives at the Midwifery Group are Registered Nurses who hold graduate degrees and are members of the American College of Nurse Midwives.

They’re also faculty members in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at the University of Rochester. Combined, the group has over 100 years of midwifery experience in primary care, contraception, and gynecology.

At UR Medicine, we believe everyone deserves access to affordable, expert health care and information. We welcome most insurance plans. For patients paying out of pocket, we offer a discounted/sliding fee schedule based on your family size and income. No one will be denied care for medically necessary services because of an inability to pay.
