What if I have a high risk pregnancy or complication during labor?

Your CNM will prescribe medicine and order treatment for any common illness that you might get during pregnancy. All midwives work with doctors who specialize in illness during pregnancy -- and the midwives at The Oregon Clinic have easy access and ongoing relationships with the physicians at The Oregon Clinic - Women's Health Today. If you have a medical problem during pregnancy or complication during labor, your midwife will work with a doctor to make sure you get the best and safest care for you and your baby. Your midwife will also work with other health care providers: nurses, social workers, nutritionists, doulas, childbirth educators, physical therapists, and other specialists to help you get the care you need.
