Mercy Birthing Center and Mercy Hospital are providing women in the St. Louis community with new and incredible options for maternity care. Come be a part of this evolving work!
Mercy Birthing Center is seeking to hire a Certified Nurse Midwife to join our rapidly growing practice and round out a team of 5 midwives and 1 women’s health nurse practitioner. We are among an elite subset of integrated birthing centers geographically located within the hospital setting. This affords us the opportunity to support physiologic birth with a hands-on, low-interventive model of care, with the safety net of immediate access to tertiary services. We provide full-scope obstetrical and gynecological care to low-risk women. We have welcomed over 900 babies since we opened 3 years ago.
Mercy Hospital is also seeking to hire a Certified Nurse Midwife to join our new faculty midwife team. We have a tremendous opportunity to train OBGYN residents in the intrapartum, postpartum, and triage settings. This provides a unique ability to teach them both physiologic and medical management models of care through direct supervision on patient care units, lectures, and research projects. We are investing in the next generation of OBGYNs!
Mercy is the maternity leader in this area. We have introduced many great services; for example we are the only facility in the state to offer nitrous oxide to laboring moms.
Mercy is located in suburban St. Louis which offers beautiful residential areas. It is a community with a remarkably low cost of living for all the comforts and attractions it affords. The four season climate and abundance of cultural and outdoor activities, along with five-star restaurants, major league sporting attractions, and a diverse economy makes St. Louis an attractive place to live, work and play!
Qualifications: Candidates must be passionate about supporting physiologic birth; work well with all members of the birthing center team, and be committed to a model of excellence.
