Call the Midwives!
Choosing a health care provider to care for you and your baby during your pregnancy is one of
the biggest decisions you’ll make. Often women think of OB/GYNs as their only option, but in
recent years nurse-midwives have become a growing alternative for women with low-risk,
uncomplicated pregnancies. Join Meghann Batten and Amber Price, nurse-midwives from the
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, as they discuss the “low-tech, high-touch” approach
to the growing demand for low intervention natural childbirth.
VCU Medical Center will have its series of free educational seminars on current health care topics during the hazy days of summer. The seminars will be held at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s Education and Library Complex, 1800 Lakeside Ave. All of the seminars are free and open to the public, but registration is recommended. For more information or to register, call (804) 828-0123 or email email@example.com.
