Welcome to Midwifery Services at The GW Medical Faculty Associates.
Midwifery joined The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates in June 2010. We believe that collaborative care between midwives and physicians yields the very best outcomes for pregnant women and their babies. Our full-scope midwifery service provides in-hospital, midwifery managed pregnancy care and births for the women of DC. We do only hospital births at the George Washington University Hospital. As of July 2012, there are 6 midwives in the practice: Whitney Pinger CNM, Laura Emmons CNM, Marsha Stalcup CNM, and Nora Fisher CNM, Kimla McDonald, and Sierra Casillas. We also have additional midwives and midwifery students working with us both in the office and on labor and delivery. We see women on the usual schedule and provide 24/7 call for deliveries. Medical collaboration is provided by our physician colleagues at The George Washington University Hospital.
Enrollment for our practice is limited and we are currently enrolling women with fall 2013 due dates.
Our office practice has 3 convenient locations:
22nd & I Street, NW, 5th Floor
Washington, DC 20037
2300 M Street, NW, Suite 110
Washington, DC 20037
4920 Elm Street
Bethesda, MD 20814
We ask that women who consider our services meet the criteria below:
• They must be in be in excellent health
• They must follow our nutritional and exercise guidelines
• They must be committed to natural birth
• They must have additional labor support and partners that are engaged in the pregnancy and natural childbirth process
• They must embrace our model of care in a university-based learning environment
• They must assume the risk inherent in birth with us
• They must be committed to waiting for labor to begin on its own
If these criteria make sense to you, please email us back to let us know you are interested in enrolling in our caseload. We host monthly “Meet the Midwives” for prospective couples to come meet us and find out more information. The next meeting is June 26, 2013 at 6:45 pm in The George Washington University Hospital Auditorium.
Blessings on your journey!
