Brigham and Women’s Midwifery Group was established over 35 years ago as one of the first midwifery practices in Massachusetts. It is our mission to provide high quality, culturally sensitive full-scope midwifery care to a diverse population of women.
The midwives support each person’s right to active participation in health-care decision-making. We are an integral part of the Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health. Our practice is actively committed to the education of students in the disciplines of midwifery, medicine and nursing. Educating future health care providers is not only our responsibility but also contributes to a model of care that is up to date with current trends and research.
A hallmark of our practice is the provision of community-based accessible care. We provide continuity of care at nine distinct community health centers in six of Boston's neighborhoods and at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Each site is dedicated to individualized, family-focused care with an emphasis on personal health knowledge. In collaboration with physician staff from the health centers, along with resident and attending physicians from the OB/GYN Department, we provide expert obstetric and gynecologic care to a broad range of women of all ages. We are able to offer prenatal care in English, Haitian Creole, Cape Verdean Creole, Spanish, and French.
Adolescent Reproductive Health Services (ARHS) is a hospital-based clinic that has been providing care to young women in Boston for over three decades. The midwives in ARHS provide prenatal, postpartum, family planning and gynecological care to women aged 21 years and younger in both English and Spanish. The midwives provide age appropriate care in a safe, confidential environment. Each patient is also connected with a designated social worker who can help with issues including housing, school, childbirth education, and preparing for the baby. In addition, the midwives and social worker connect patients to external resources, such as the Young Parents Program at Children's Hospital of Boston and the Healthy Baby Program of Boston, which will help support them through their journey into parenthood. After delivery, the midwives provide full-scope contraceptive and GYN services.
