Choosing a Prenatal Care Provider

If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, it is an important time in your life. It is equally as important to get maternity care that meets your needs and preferences. Tanana Valley Clinic offers two different pregnancy and birth services, depending on your desires:  

  • Obstetricians (OBs):  An obstetrician, or OB, is a doctor with advanced training in caring for women during pregnancy, labor, and birth. OBs have the knowledge and experience to:
    • Care for all types of pregnancies, including high-risk pregnancies
    • Manage complications, such as preeclampsia
    • Use special tools or procedures to assist with vaginal deliveries
    • Deliver babies by cesarean section, or C-section
  • Certified nurse-midwives:  Certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are advanced practitioners who help healthy women during labor, delivery, and after the birth of their babies. Midwives generally provide a more personalized, high-touch approach. Learn more about our Midwifery practice.
