PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH PHILOSOPHY
"All of the nurse-midwives at OHSU work towards empowering women during pregnancy, labor and birth. We do this by listening to our patients and respecting their concerns and ideas. We provide personalized, individual attention and encourage women to be well-informed and involved in decision-making about their care."
