Meet Our Certified Nurse Midwives

Birth Care Services

  • We are a hospital-based practice, which means your baby will be born at Iowa Methodist Medical Center or Methodist West Hospital.
  • We believe in accommodating your needs, whether that means a natural birth or the use of epidurals.
  • When you are admitted in labor, one of our midwives will be present to deliver your baby as well as provide supportive care during the labor process.
  • The safety of you and your baby always comes first. We work with the OB physicians, and, should it become necessary, we can involve them in the birth process at any point. Physician leadership is provided by Amy Bingaman, M.D., medical director of Midwife Services.
Care provided by nurse-midwives is characterized by low rates of induced labor, episiotomies or Cesarean sections.

Our Numbers:

Over a six month average, our rates are:

  • C-Sections: 10%
  • Inductions: 13%

Women's Care Services

  • We manage and treat common health problems for adolescents during puberty and women going through menopause. 

  • We provide annual exams, vaccinations, fertility counseling, referral for mammography, laboratory testing or specialist consultation.

  • We can discuss natural family planning or find the type of birth control right for you.

  • Our practice guidelines provide for medical consultation, collaboration and referral, and are in accordance with the Standards for the Practice of Midwifery, as defined by the American College of Nurse Midwives.
