Certified Nurse Midwives

The Birthplace at NSMC is filled with compassionate, experienced staff, many of whom have been dedicated to The Birthplace for decades. The care team is experienced with variety of natural birthing techniques to help women through their delivery. Many women choose an NSPG nurse midwife for their prenatal care, to prepare them for childbirth. Midwives work closely with you to create a birth plan that fits your needs.

Dedicated Laborists

Our practice includes two dedicated laborists, Cheryl Thompson-Cragwell, MD, and Beverly Savage, MD. They are based at the NSMC Birthplace and care for inpatient pregnant women and deliver babies.
