Certified Nurse Midwives

Renee A. McNeill, CNM

Renee A. McNeill, CNM

I have been a nurse for 35 years. I spent the first 19 years "specializing" in pediatrics. I realized that I wanted to take care of families too, so I decided to concentrate my career in obstetrics and women’s health care. Taking care of pregnant women before and during labor has been very fulfilling and enjoyable. It is an honor to help bring a baby into this world.

I like to assist families in experiencing the type of labor they want in a calming and supportive manner. I love our midwifery practice at Western ObGyn because we are able to offer a full range of midwifery care in a supportive environment.

I love working with women of all ages - from teenagers to older women. Helping a family bring a new baby into the world in a true blessing and honor. Developing friendships along the journey is an added bonus.

My philosophy of midwifery care is based on the belief that pregnancy and birth are normal and beautiful physiological life events. I strongly believe that my role is to be a guardian of this normal process. My goal is to provide evidence-based care in partnership with women so that they can be empowered to make informed choices.

My feelings about pregnancy and birth are best stated by Barbara Katz Rothman, who said “Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers—strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength."
