Our Nurse Midwives

At MOGA, our skilled certified nurse midwives focus on empowering you during your pregnancy. Education is coupled with support as our midwives make sure that you stay healthy as your baby grows throughout your pregnancy. Should complications arise, our midwives will collaborate with our highly respected OB/GYNs to provide seamless care for you and your baby.

We are pleased to offer a delivery experience that is as unique as each of the patients we serve. By creating a low-tech but high touch environment within the walls of Banner University Medical Center Phoenix, you and your baby will enjoy the best of both worlds: the comfort of your private labor and delivery room, with the safety of world-class consultants and resources of a university hospital. BUMCP offers baby friendly protocols and offers 24/7 lactation support.
