Newark Beth Israel Medical Center also offers a comprehensive midwifery program. Each year, more than 500 babies are born at The Beth through our distinguished Nurse Midwifery Program.

Expectant mothers can take advantage of our Collaborative Practice comprised of board-certified nurse midwives and board-certified obstetricians. As part of this new practice, prenatal care is provided by both nurse midwives and physicians. Our nurse midwives are experts in normal pregnancy and birth. If complications develop during the pregnancy or birth, an obstetrician, who is in-house is called in to assist.

The nurse midwives at NBIMC are available through 24-hour beeper access. Contact MaryAnne Markowski:
