Northside Women’s Specialists have continued to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic throughout this past year. As usual, our goal is to take great care of all our patients. With a growing number of Georgians becoming vaccinated including all of our providers, NWS has updated our office visitor policy.
Keeping social distancing and Covid19 in mind the providers want our patients to know we are always here for them in all capacities.

Our OBGYNs and Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs) work in a collaborative environment to provide optimal patient care. Most women are familiar with the role of the OB/GYN, but may not know the value that a CNM brings. CNMs are uniquely positioned to provide emotional support and health education for the patient and her family. Licensed and certified by the American College of Nurse Midwives, CNMs provide a full scope of care including labor support during delivery. Patient satisfaction with midwifery care is high, largely because CNMs provide attentive individualized care focused on patient education.
