"Embracing the Wisdom of Collaborative Practice"
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 prenatal care and deliveries for the women of the Washington DC Metro Area. We only deliver at The George Washington University Hospital. We also provide a full array of gyn services and primary health care.
As of February 2015, there are 9 midwives in the practice: Whitney Pinger, CNM, MSN, FACNM, Laura Emmons, CNM, MSN, Marsha Stalcup, CNM, MSN, Nora Fisher, CNM, MSN, Kimla McDonald, CNM, MSN, Sierra Casillas, CNM, MSN, Alexandra Woolley, CNM, MSN, Kelly Kleiderer, CNM, MSN, and Kandace Thomas, CNM. We also have two “Midwifery Fellows” whose names are Johnna Reggi and Ilana Eastman. You will see them and our students working with us both in the office and on labor and delivery.
We see women on the usual schedule and provide 24/7 coverage for deliveries. Medical consultation and collaboration is provided by our physician colleagues at The George Washington Medical Faculty Associates.
We are currently enrolling women with summer and fall 2015 due dates.
We ask that women who consider our services meet the following criteria for enrollment:
