Our module is staffed by Certified Nurse Midwife, Susan Cheek.  Midwives are skilled health professionals dedicated to providing high quality health care services to meet women’s needs throughout every stage of life.

Our module provides support and hands on care for all of our OB patients.  We provide pregnancy test, initial OB care (including labs), scheduling ultrasounds, urine screens, and non-stress tests (used to monitor baby and contractions).

Labor and Delivery
