Physicians and Midwives is composed of a team of doctors, certified nurse midwives (CNM), and nurse practitioners (NP) that practice in five centers spread out across Northern Virginia (Alexandria, North Arlington, Mt Vernon, Kingstowne and Woodbridge) and perform deliveries at Inova Alexandria Hospital.
Our collaborative practice model provides you the best of both worlds. Our prenatal care focuses on education and empathy, as well as blood tests and sonograms. Remember, most pregnancies are normal. At a given office visit, you may see a doctor, a midwife, or a nurse practitioner. We encourage you to rotate through providers so that you can meet at least several members of our team during your prenatal care. Our doctors, midwives, and nurse practitioners are experts on the best ways to deal with the changes in your body, as well as the impending changes in your life. If a disease develops, the doctors, midwives, and nurse practitioners, as a team, pursue optimum management. Each patient in labor is cared for by both an obstetrician and a midwife. We believe that more human support in labor leads to better pregnancy outcomes. For most women, if you have a vaginal delivery, one of the midwives will deliver you. If a cesarean section is needed, one of our doctors will attend you.
Need lab results? Our very useful patient portal is available 24/7. Our dedicated call center ( 703-370-4300 ) is in place during office hours, both are there to help you accommodate your requests for medication refills, lab results or questions about your care.
Our goal is to ensure safety, confidence, and trust while providing you convenient, compassionate care.
