We are committed to caring for women in childbirth and throughout the reproductive lifecycle using the midwives model of care.
We have a proven record of safe, efficient care of women in childbirth.  
We believe in natural birth and the ability of women to safely deliver with minimal intervention.  
We work with our physician colleagues to coordinate care for healthy women seeking midwifery care.
We are proud to be the first independent midwifery practice in the Capital Region that offers hospital births.
Capital Region Midwifery offers full scope midwifery and gynecology services and serves women throughout the Capital Region, including Troy, Schenectady, Albany, Clifton Park, Latham, Saratoga Springs and Cohoes.  We have over 60 years of combined experience caring for women and have delivered over 1,800 babies.
We listen. We care. We educate. We support you. We are with you.
The midwives of our practice each hold licenses in Midwifery and Registered Professional Nurse from New York State; are certified in midwifery according to the standards of the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) and are members of The American College of Nurse Midwives.  
This practice has a consultative affiliation with the physicians of Seton Obstetrics and Gynecology who have privileges at the Burdett Care Center in Troy, NY. We are also credentialed for admissions and births at Ellis Healthcare (Bellevue campus).
