Labor and Delivery Nurses and Certified Nurse Midwives at Norton Healthcare

Labor and Delivery Nurses

Labor and delivery nurses play a crucial role during the entire childbirth experience, including early and active labor, delivery and the immediate postpartum period. Norton Healthcare’s labor and delivery nurses are highly trained and committed to providing the best care, as well as comfort and encouragement along the way.

Our No. 1 goal is to deliver healthy babies and help moms navigate the process safely.

The responsibilities of a labor and delivery nurse include:

  • Monitor mom’s and baby’s vital signs
  • Time contractions
  • Coach moms throughout labor and delivery
  • Identify and assist with handling any complications
  • Help administer medications and epidurals
  • Assist doctor or midwife as needed

Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs)

Want to work with a nurse midwife for your pregnancy and delivery care? Norton Healthcare established a midwifery practice as part of our commitment to meeting the unique needs of all expectant mothers. We have certified nurse midwives who provide comprehensive, family-centered maternity care from the first prenatal visit through labor and delivery, and after the birth of your baby.
