At Durham Women’s Clinic, we work as a team to provide our patients with personalized care. We have physicians in obstetrics and gynecology, a physician’s assistant, and certified nurse midwives to help create the obstetrics experience that is right for you.
We offer a traditional model of prenatal care as well as group prenatal care classes known as Centering Pregnancy. In addition to low risk pregnancies, we take care of many high-risk obstetrical conditions, including twins, hypertension, diabetes, and vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC).
Appointments can be made at our Durham office or our satellite office in Brier Creek. We deliver babies at Duke Regional Hospital and both a physician and midwife are on call 24 hours a day.
All prenatal labs, ultrasounds, and genetic screening tests are conveniently completed in our office. We also offer multiple wellness services to enhance your obstetrics experience including prenatal yoga, childbirth education, and breastfeeding classes.
Exceptional, full scope, Midwifery care
At Durham Women’s Clinic our patients have the opportunity to seek care through our team of Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM’s) with Regional Midwifery. Regional Midwifery is a division of Durham Women’s Clinic and Chapel Hill Ob-Gyn.
CNM’s are registered nurses with advanced training and education in the art and skill of midwifery. Nurse midwives must complete a training program, demonstrate clinical competence and pass rigorous certification examination.
CNM’s are independent healthcare providers who provide care to women throughout their lifespans. They offer gynecologic care, well women exams, family planning counseling, prenatal care and postpartum support including lactation services. All CNM’s are committed to individualized, patient-centered care and encourage patient involvement in all aspects of health.
Our nurse-midwives provide care at Durham Women’s Clinic, Chapel Hill Ob-Gyn and our Brier Creek office. They work collaboratively with our board-certified Ob-Gyns who practice out of these offices. One of our midwives is always on call with one of our physicians at Duke Regional Hospital, allowing patients to have the labor experience that is right for them. With this collaborative environment we are able to ensure you get the highest level of care you need.
We offer group prenatal care designed to engage mothers and partners through the journey of pregnancy. This model of care follows a similar traditional prenatal course, but your visits last 90 minutes, so you have plenty of time to address questions and concerns. Women develop self-confidence and self-care skills. Many of our families develop lifelong friendships.
