About Us

"Embracing the Wisdom of Collaborative Practice"

At Midwivery Services at The George Washington Medical Faculty Associates, we believe that collaborative care between midwives and physicians yields the very best outcomes for pregnant women and their babies. Our full-scope midwifery service provides in-hospital, midwifery-managed prenatal care and deliveries for the women of the Washington DC Metro Area. We only deliver at The George Washington University Hospital. We also provide a full array of GYN services and primary health care. 

As of November 2015, there are 10 midwives in the practice: Whitney Pinger, CNM, MSN, FACNM, Marsha Stalcup, CNM, MSN, Nora Fisher, CNM, MSN, Kimla McDonald, CNM, MSN, Sierra Casillas, CNM, MSN, MSN, Kandace Thomas, CNM, Hannah MacIntyre, CNM, WHNP-BC, Ashlee Lyvers, CNM, Ilana Eastman, CNM, RN and Jenna Beyounes, CNM, WHNP-BCWe also have a “Midwifery Fellow", Alice Curtis Cline. You will see her and our students working with us both in the office and on labor and delivery.

We see women on the usual schedule and provide 24/7 coverage for deliveries. Medical consultation and collaboration is provided by our physician colleagues at The George Washington Medical Faculty Associates. 

We look forward to enrolling you in our practice. Ideally, you would enroll with us at the very beginning of your pregnancy. We are currently enrolling women with Winter and Spring 2017 due dates. Please join us at our next Meet the Midwife, our monthly, community building event hosted in the auditorium of The George Washington University Hospital. 

We ask that women who consider our services meet the criteria below:

  • They must be in excellent health
  • They must follow our nutritional and exercise guidelines
  • They must be committed to natural birth
  • They must have partners that are engaged in the pregnancy and natural childbirth process and additional labor support
  • They must accept that there is an inherent risk in pregnancy and birth
  • They must embrace our model of care in a university-based learning environment
  • They must be committed to waiting for labor to begin on its own
Blessings on your journey!

Meet the Midwives

The next meeting is Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in the The George Washington University Hospital Auditorium. If these criteria make sense to you and you would like more information about the practice please click here.
