Personalized Pregnancy Care
While midwifery has traditionally been associated with child birth and home delivery, things have changed dramatically as this age-old practice has evolved into its modern day counterpart. Contrary to what many think, about 99 percent of all babies birthed by midwives are born in a hospital or birth center.
Upstate's midwives specialize in pregnancy care including perinatal care before, during and after childbirth, as well as care of the newborn. Delivering exclusively at the Jim and DeDe Walsh Birth Center on our Community Campus, Upstate's Midwifery Program offers the option of VBAC, or vaginal birth after cesarean section.
Our midwives offer personalized care throughout your pregnancy, labor and delivery with the support of a team of board-certified obstetricians. In the event a complication develops and the services of an obstetrician becomes necessary, our midwives and obstetrician work together to address your individual medical needs.
