da Vinci Surgical System
Trinity Health uses the da Vinci® Si™ HD Surgical System for some hysterectomies and endometriosis procedures. The system gives your surgeon a highly-magnified, 3D view of the body, and the tiny, wristed instruments allow them to operate through one or just a few small incisions.
Potential benefits include:
- Less pain
- Lower risk of infection
- Faster recovery time
- Less scarring
- Reduced blood loss
Recognizing pregnancy and birth as a natural process, our midwifery team believes each birth is unique and offers a wide range of choices for each mother. These choices include a continuum from minimal intervention up to alternative options including an epidural. Our midwives encourage parents to participate in the labor decision process and are happy to discuss your ideal birth with you.
Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) are educated in two disciplines: midwifery and nursing. They work in consultation, collaboration, and referral with Trinity Health Ob/Gyns. Trinity Health’s midwives attend births in the hospital setting and do not have a home birth practice.
Certified Nurse Midwives
CNMs earn graduate degrees, complete a midwifery education program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME), and pass a national certification examination administered by the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) to receive their professional designation.
