UNC Midwives serve women throughout their lives from teen to mature women. We provide a wide range of services including first gynecological exams, obstetrical care, labor and delivery, contraception, perimenopause and women's preventative health care. We place importance on teaching and counseling and working together with women and their families in designing the best birth plan for pregnant women and the best health care plan for all women.

Certified Nurse-Midwives are the experts in normal pregnancy care.
