Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
We are looking to add to our busy practice! Our midwifery group provides delivery care at both a CABC accredited freestanding birth center and at our local community teaching hospital. We are a full scope midwifery practice in Danbury, CT; right on the New York State border. We are looking for a fifth, full time, committed CNM to join our busy practice. We practice true midwifery care and provide our clients individualized services including gynecology, AP, IP, PP, family planning and reproductive services. We are also able to offer our clients advanced, in office midwifery services including colposcopy, circumcision, limited obstetrical ultrasound and certified lactation consultation.
We are a cohesive group looking for the right "fit" to join us. As a CABC accredited center we share in management responsibilities with the center director. The midwifery candidate joining us would be expected to help in maintaining accreditation. Participating in maintaining our accreditation is a wonderful way to learn how to manage a birth center!
Our practice is housed in Connecticut's only free standing birth center building; the Connecticut Childbirth & Women's Center. We have been in operation since 1997 and grow more active and productive each year. Attending a birth at the center is very much like attending a homebirth. Clients are unmedicated (we do, however offer nitrous oxide) and families leave 4-6 hours after birthing. Committed RNs on staff provide birth assistance and postpartum care. Families are well-educated and actively seek our care from 1-2 hours away. Our physician colleagues see their own clients in a different office location but provide us with 24 hour a day, 7 day a week backup coverage.
We also attend births directly across the street at Danbury Hospital, a moderate sized community teaching hospital with a Level IIIb NICU, neonatology team and in house L&D anesthesia. Danbury Hospital serves as a tertiary care center for the upper Fairfield and lower Litchfield county areas.
Danbury, CT is located an hour from Manhattan and on the MetroNorth train line and 2.5 hours from Boston; right in the middle of many wonderful cultural, educational and recreational opportunities. Skiing in Vermont is a 2.5 to 3 hour ride away and the beaches of Cape Cod are 3 to 4 hours away. Yale University and Hospital are less than an hour drive from Danbury. The greater Danbury community is a wonderful mix of dozens of ethnic and cultural families.
Benefits include medical and dental insurance contribution as well as retirement program. Vacation and educational time are generous. Salary is very competitive and malpractice insurance, licenses and fees are also included in the hire package.
We will respond to all candidates. We would prefer a candidate with 2-3 years of midwifery experience who truly desires out of hospital birth and is comfortable with it. We will consider a new graduate with strong L&D nursing experience and/or out of hospital exposure/experience. If you are a team player, looking to be a real partner and consider yourself to be a motivated self-starter who wants to practice real midwifery, please contact us.
