Pregnancy & Childbirth

Your journey to parenthood begins even before you become pregnant. Experience matters—at CMC we’re committed to providing support and encouragement well before your first contraction. Our obstetricians, nurse-midwives, and nurses are dedicated to providing expert, personalized prenatal, labor and delivery care to you and your baby. We encourage you to ask questions, seek support and tell us your needs before, during, and after your birth experience.

Prenatal Care Options
