The term Midwife means “with woman,” and each year we celebrate Midwifery Week by recognizing the contributions of midwives and the experiences of the women they serve.
Since 1975, students and staff have educated the community on a broad range of women’s health issues, including nutrition, sexual health, menopause and osteoporosis. OHSU midwives also offer a water birth program, established in 1997.
To learn more about becoming a Nurse-Midwife, please take a look at the OHSU School of nursing program pages. Or to learn how to receive care from one of the OHSU midwives take a look at these web pages.
National Midwifery Week is supported by ACNM, its members, physicians, and women’s health organizations across the nation.
