Care for the most important people in your life
At La Clinica you can choose from a full range of health providers for prenatal care and childbirth based on your situation and preferences. La Clinica offers prenatal care through certified nurse midwives at our Women’s Health Center. Our patients deliver babies at Providence Medford Medical Center and Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.
All of our providers practice compassionate, respectful, and family-centered care. We promote healthy living and illness prevention through education, empowering mothers to prepare for the birth of their baby, and helping them make informed, sound decisions about their own care.
For expectant mothers, we provide care at every stage of pregnancy including social services and health education. La Clinica offers expectant mothers a host of options in prenatal care and delivery, including the CenteringPregnancy® program.
Our certified nurse midwives are board-certified nurse practitioners specially trained to provide support, education, and prenatal and delivery care in a nurturing and woman-focused environment. They care for new mothers and their infants for two weeks after the baby’s birth and help transition the baby’s care to a pediatrician, family medicine physician, or pediatric nurse practitioner.
Nurse midwives are trained to recognize early signs of complications in a pregnancy and partner with physicians to provide the care a mother needs. They are licensed to order epidural anesthesia and IV pain medication during labor. If a cesarean section should become necessary during delivery, your midwife will not only coordinate your surgical care but will stay with you during surgery as the surgical first assistant.[anchor]providers[/anchor]
