"Embracing the Wisdom of Collaborative Practice"

At Midwifery Services at The GW Medical Faculty Associates, 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 November 2016, there are 9 midwives in the practice: Whitney Pinger, CNM, MSN, FACNM, Marsha Stalcup, CNM, MSN, Nora Fisher, CNM, MSN, Kimla McDonald, CNM, MSN, Kandace Thomas, CNM, Hannah MacIntyre, CNM, WHNP-BC, Ashlee Lyvers, CNM, and Ilana Eastman, CNM, RN. We also have two Midwifery Fellows, Katie Daily CNM and Genee Lister CNM. Midwifery Fellows are fully licensed and credentialed midwives who are taking an additional year of training with us to hone both their clinical and collaboration skills.  You will see them and our students working with us both in the office and on labor and delivery.

We see women on the typical prenatal schedule and provide 24/7 coverage for deliveries.  Medical consultation and collaboration is provided by our physician colleagues at The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates and The George Washington University Hospital. 

We ask that women who consider our services meet the criteria below:

  • Be in excellent health
  • Follow our nutritional and exercise guidelines
  • Be committed to natural birth
  • Have partners that are engaged in the pregnancy and natural childbirth process and additional labor support
  • Understand that there is an inherent risk in pregnancy and birth
  • Embrace our model of care in a university-based learning environment
  • Be committed to waiting for labor to begin on its own

We look forward to enrolling you in our practice. Ideally, you would enroll with us at the very beginning of your pregnancy. We are currently enrolling women with Fall and Winter 2017 due dates. Please join us at our next Meet the Midwife, our monthly, community-building event hosted in the auditorium of The George Washington University Hospital. 

Blessings on your journey!

Meet the Midwives

The next meeting is Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the The George Washington University Hospital Auditorium. If these criteria make sense to you and you would like more information about the practice please click here.
