    Our experienced Midwives believe in vaginal birth. We will work with you to achieve this if possible.

  • What if I am high risk or become high risk, can I become or remain a patient?

    Because Village Maternity has a collaborating Ob/Gyn on staff, many clinical situations can be managed within the practice. We also have available outside Maternal Fetal Specialist consultation.
