Hi there! Just want to clarify... Not sure if you are from NJ, but in this state there are certified midwives, and certified nurse midwives. The certified midwives do home births and cannot be your primary medical provider in a hospital setting. The certified NURSE midwives cannot do homebirths (they will lose their lisence, go figure), and they are considered the admitting medical provider at the hospital, in this case Morristown, and are in charge of your care. They "replace" you Ob of you want to think about it that way. And it's way better because they don't just show up for the birth, they are with you through the whole process in the hospital (which OB's are not).
Avalon is affiated with 3 obgyn's for high risk patients, and/or if you need a c-section, etc. their obgyn's names are Nina Reynolds, Bob Steer, and...well I forgot the other guys name but you can check the website. I never met them, because I never had reason or desire to do so.
So, just to sum up- the nurse midwives in this group do all of your prenatal care and the delivery. As I mentioned before, they are highly respected medical professionals at Morristown Medical Center, and I worked with several doctors who used them instead obgyn's to deliver Their babies as well!
Hope this helps! :)
