Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
An independent practice of five certified nurse-midwives are looking for a sixth partner!. We prefer an experienced midwife with excellent skills but will consider a very well rounded new grad. The perfect candidate will have a desire to practice true midwifery care and the conviction to be part of a team. Ours is a full-scope Midwifery practice located in Danbury, CT, one hour from New York City and two and one half hours from Boston. Birthing care is provided at our CABC-accredited free-standing birth center as well as at our local community hospital. We provide gynecologic, antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum, family planning and reproductive services on an individualized basis. In addition, we also offer advanced, in-office services that include colposcopy, limited obstetrical ultrasound and certified lactation consultation.
Our practice is located at Connecticut's only free-standing birth center, the Connecticut Childbirth & Women's Center We have operated since 1997, and grow more active and productive each year. Attending a birth at the birth center is very much like attending a homebirth. Clients are non-medicated and families leave 4-6 hours after giving birth. Committed registered nurses on staff provide birth assistance and postpartum care. Families are well educated and often drive 1-2 hours to seek our care. For those clients who either desire or require hospital care, Danbury Hospital is located directly across the street. As 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 northwestern counties of Connecticut. Midwives enjoy hospital privileges to provide continuity of care when appropriate, as well as more advanced care when needed or desired by the client.
We are a cohesive group looking for the right "fit" to join us. Practice and birth center management responsibilities are shared. 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 and consultative services. The physician staff is comprised of four female ob/gyns. They are committed to the midwifery model of care and are sensitive to the needs of our clients.
Danbury, CT is located on Candlewood Lake, right in the middle of many wonderful educational and recreational opportunities. Skiing in Vermont is 3-4 hour ride away and the beautiful beaches of Cape Cod, MA are also within 3-4 hours drive. Yale University and Hospital are less than an hour drive from Danbury.
