It is with great pleasure that we announce the "birth" of Capital Region Midwifery! We opened our doors on January 1, 2012 and care for women of all ages....whether they be women in our care now, or women looking for midwifery care in the near future.

We offer birthing at two locations:  the Burdett Care Center located in Samaritan Hospital in Troy and the Ellis Bellevue Woman’s Center in Schenectady.  We collaborate with the physicians of Seton OB/GYN and the hospitalists of Ellis Bellevue. 

We are excited about the great places women have as an option for birth in a hospital in our area!  Click here to learn more about us

Midwife means with woman.  We are truly with women.

Pregnancy is a natural process.
Everyone deserves a safe and satisfying birth experience. In most cases, birth can occur with very little intervention. Capital Region Midwifery offers women and families a safe and personalized birth experience.  We listen.  We educate.  We support our patients and we empower them to make decisions about their own care. 

We care about women.
Listening to our patients, caring for their needs, and providing a respectful and nurturing environment is what we do best.  Beyond birth, we care for women throughout their lifetimes.  We offer well-woman care, gynecological exams, family planning, and menopausal care.

Oak leaf and acorns
Why the acorns and oak leaf as a symbol?

In Norse and Celtic culture acorns symbolized life, fertility and immortality. Others regard the acorn as a symbol for power and survival.

According to the Acorn and Oaks page, since the acorn only appears on a fully mature oak, it is may be regarded as a symbol of the patience needed to attain goals over long periods of time, thus representing perseverance and hard work.

"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn."
 - Ralph Waldo Emerson
