Few things are more transformative in your life than pregnancy and the birth of your child. And, while your transformation may be life-changing, you can take comfort in knowing that we’ll give you all the information, education, and expert medical care you’ll need to handle the transition comfortably.  At Lifestages, we offer a variety of care options for our patients to support you from pregnancy through delivery and post-natal care.

Lifesages-Obstetrics-LandingSpecialist Choices: Physicians and Midwives

Our medical team is committed to a patient-centered approach, which may include obstetric care from a physician or certified nurse midwife. Our highly trained, experienced midwives were among the first in the Dayton area to champion personal birthing plans that match the needs and expectations of mothers-to-be.
