Midwifery Care

The Midwives of Loudoun County is a full-scope midwifery service within Capital Women’s Care Ashburn. We attend births at INOVA Loudoun Hospital in Leesburg, Virginia. We offer prenatal sevices, labor and birth care, postpartum support as well as annual well-woman exams, birth control options, and gynecological problem visits.

Our Philosophy

We believe all women deserve a midwife, no matter where they are in their life journey. During pregnancy and birth, we serve all women and their families no matter their pre-existing or obstetrical diagnosis, including “high-risk” pregnancies. We have a dedicated team of OBGYN physicians who collaborate with us to provide personalized and evidence-based care.

  • We recognize and promote pregnancy as a normal physiological process.
  • We advocate for non-intervention in the absence of complications.
  • We emphasize evidence-based care and shared decision-making.
  • We empower women as partners in health care.
