Midwifery

OU Physicians is one of the few practices in Oklahoma with both physicians and a Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs). Our CNMs are advanced practice registered nurses who specialize in women's health care, are certified through the American College of Nurse-Midwives, and are recognized by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. CNMs at OU Physicians deliver at Hillcrest and do not deliver at home or in a birth center. They are able to prescribe medications, order tests, and provide obstetrical and gynecological services through the lifespan. Families who seek a birth experience with a midwife can rest assured that not only are our midwives highly qualified, but they partner with board-certified OB/GYNs to provide excellent care.
