Our Team of Midwives
Midwifery means “with women,” and Garrison Women’s Health Center is proud of our history of supporting women with midwives from our Dover, NH office.
Ours was the first practice in New Hampshire to offer care by Certified Nurse Midwives.
Since Judy Edwards’ start in 1975, our midwives have provided the Seacoast NH and Southern Maine community with their compassionate care, individualized attention, and medical expertise.
What Midwives Do
We are committed to the importance of life-long care of women, and also share a particular passion for prenatal care.
We want to help you experience a happy and healthy pregnancy, and look forward to supporting you through the life-changing event of having a child.
"I can't begin to tell you how much we have appreciated the care provided to us over the last seven years by Garrison Women's Health Center. We have been so lucky to have had our healthy children, all with your midwives. Our experiences were amazing and will forever be in our hearts. Your love and support before, druing and after the birth of our chilfren has been like no other." ~ Miranda M.

NH Certified Nurse Midwives
Certified Nurse Midwives are all fully trained nurses, licensed in the state of New Hampshire, who have additional, extensive training and national certification in midwifery.
We work closely with you and with the physicians at Garrison Women’s Health to provide personalized care.
Garrison has a collaborative model for midwifery care. You can choose whether to see a midwife or a doctor for your visits, but most of our clients see both.
Please call for an appointment if you would like to meet with one of the midwives!
