The Lima Memorial Alliance OB-GYN office opened their doors to the public and other hospital employees Wednesday afternoon.

The open house was held in honor of National Midwifery Week to showcase the new midwifery services that are now available to the community. Visitors could get a look at the facilities available at Lima Memorial as well as learn more about what the on site midwives do other than just delivering babies.

"Most people when they hear the word 'midwife' think we are all delivering babies at home and yes, there are some midwives that deliver babies at home, but another common misconception is that we only provide care for pregnant women which is untrue - we provide care for pregnant women and during the postpartum period during my pregnancy, but then we also do GYN visits," said Nicole Pothast, Certified Nurse-Midwife for Lima Memorial Health System.

The new midwife services are a first for Lima Memorial.
