Certified Nurse Midwives

Our certified nurse midwives have established themselves as key members of the Lifestages medical team and have raised the professional profile of midwifery among patients, physicians and other medical staff. Lifestages midwives have also raised the bar on practice standards in the community. For example, Lifestages midwives are on call 24- hours a day, seven days a week. Time and time again, patients tell us that their close and trusting relationship with a Lifestages midwife has given them a new perspective on what women’s health care should be. Working with a midwife has helped them reach deep and discover what is truly important to them. For more information about our certified nurse midwives, please browse their profiles below.

PAMELA M. MADDEN, CNM, MS

“It’s important to have options when designing a birthing plan. It’s even more critical to fully understand those options and know what they mean for mother and baby. Our midwives make sure that pregnant women make informed choices when it comes to planning their birthing experience. This commitment to education is a hallmark of the Lifestages approach to quality care.”
