Three certified nurse-midwives (CNMs)—Le-Ann Parker, Dana Taylor, and Julie Weathers—will provide round-the-clock, high-quality midwifery care to women and their families.

They are registered nurses with master’s degrees, post-master’s training and board certification by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. They will work with physicians at Richmond OB-GYN, including Alice Hirata, M.D., and Sarah Peterson, M.D., in a caring, collaborative and compassionate manner. Hirata says, “Midwives are a wonderful addition to our Richmond OB-GYN West End practice.”

      Professional, state-of-the-art medical services include all areas of obstetrical and gynecological care, as well as high-risk pregnancies; urogynocology; three-dimensional and four-dimensional ultrasound; digital mammography; reconstructive surgery and pelvic medicine services.
