INCREDIBLE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY!!  We are looking for our 10th midwife for a busy hospital-based midwife practice in the Des Moines area.  We have between 40-50 deliveries a month.  We share call between 2 hospitals, UnityPoint Methodist Downtown and UnityPoint Methodist West.  We do not do newborn care, however some of our midwives perform circumcisions.  We see a large number of women for well woman checks, birth control, menopause, and problem focus.  We do 24-hour call for our backing OB physicians at UnityPoint Methodist Hospital along with taking care of our patients in labor and antepartum care.  At this hospital when our midwives are on-call they are also responsible for seeing the majority of patients that present to the OBED whether or not they are our patient.  At Methodist West we only labor and deliver our own patients.  We have a midwife on-call for each hospital 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We are a hospital-based midwife clinic that is a part of UnityPoint Blank Woman's and Children's clinics in Des Moines, Iowa. We have a dedicated team of midwives delivering care to women of all ages and demographics. We also have two outreach clinics in Marshalltown Iowa and Waukee Iowa once a week to serve our greater community. We have two medical directors that we work with that are aligned with the UnityPoint OB clinics. We have a great relationship with our OB partners with mutual trust and respect. Our 24-hour call at Methodist Hospital Downtown is a fast-paced environment. We not only take care of our patients that are in labor, but also round on the OB physician's patients, staff the OBED, stand-by for the OB physician's deliveries as needed, and help first assist. A typical work week for full-time consists of either 2-3 office days and one call day or 2-3 call days and one office day.
