We are excited to announce that Champlain OB/GYN has added Certified Nurse Midwifery to the practice. 

Our goal, as always, is to provide comprehensive services, and appropriate and effective care.  We are confident that the FAHC Midwives are the perfect addition to our practice because we are all committed to offering you the most advanced and complete care that is personalized to your needs.  The FAHC midwives are the longest standing midwifery group in Chittenden County with many years of experience and they are well known for their individualized family-oriented prenatal care.   The physician and midwifery collaborative care model at Champlain OB/GYN will give you a balance of natural and medical perspectives during your pre and postnatal care in a convenient, comfortable and relaxed practice.  You will have the same or similar testing and treatment options available to you and you will still deliver your baby in the hospital setting.  
Your care will be primarily with the Midwives.  They will see you for your monthly, bi-monthly, weekly, and bi-weekly visits.  Champlain OB/GYN physicians will see you for any ultrasounds, problem visits, or consults that the Midwives recommend.  The on-call schedule for delivery will consist only of Midwifery call and the FAHC physicians will offer assistance if needed.  Your 6 week post-partum visit will be performed by a physician at Champlain OB/GYN.
We value the relationships that we have created with you and we understand that with any change there are many questions and concerns.  We would greatly appreciate you allowing us to answer your questions about this transition, please ask any questions or voice any concerns at your next visit, or call the office.
