Lexington Women's Health

Modern Midwifery

Childbirth can be intimidating, but you will be surprised what your body can do. The midwives at Lexington Women's Health use natural techniques with the security of modern medicine. Throughout pregnancy, the midwives encourage you to listen to your instincts, while they listen to you. Our staff consists of four certified nurse midwives, Iniko Sallee, CNM, Alisha Morgan, CNM, Shelley A. Chenault, CNM, and Laure Schadler, CNM.

Your choice. Your body. Your strength.

Caring for laboring women and their families, and helping to make their birth individualized and special, is our midwives' passion. They are especially interested in patient education— empowering women to make their own decisions regarding health care across their lifespan. During pregnancy, they guide you in creating a birth plan, listening to your concerns and encouraging you through labor and delivery—whether you choose medicated or unmedicated birth.
