Capital Region Midwifery Joins St. Peter’s Health Partners

Capital Region Midwifery

Capital Region Midwifery and its team of licensed midwives have joined St. Peter’s Health Partners Medical Associates (SPHPMA). The practice offers women a full range of midwifery care from conception to delivery, in four convenient locations in the Capital Region.

The midwifery model of care focuses on a natural birth and the ability of women to safely deliver their babies with minimal intervention. Midwives provide comprehensive prenatal care and education, guide labor and birth, and address complications. Midwives also work with physician colleagues to coordinate care for healthy women seeking midwifery care, and assist in cesarean sections and postpartum exams.

Practicing at Capital Region Midwifery are licensed midwives:

  • Margaret Holcomb, DNP, CNM
  • Pamela A. Platis, CNM
  • Maureen E. Murphy, MS, CM
  • Shelby Robertson, CNM
  • Debra A. Griner, CNM
  • Sara J. Posdzich, CNM

SPHPMA is an affiliate of St. Peter’s Health Partners.

“St. Peter’s Health Partners Medical Associates is pleased to welcome Capital Region Midwifery to our talented team of obstetrics and gynecology specialists,” said Rik Baier, president of SPHPMA. “These skilled providers have decades of combined experience in offering women compassionate, patient-centered care, which is invaluable during the life-changing experience of childbirth.”

When it opened in 2012, Capital Region Midwifery was the first independent midwifery practice in the area that offered hospital births. As part of SPHPMA, its staff of licensed midwives continue to deliver at Burdett Birth Center in Troy.
