Meet the Midwife

Janet Goff

 

As nurse-midwives we provide care throughout a women’s life not only prenatal services and labor and delivery support but primary care, annual exams, family planning and education. We provide loving and expert care though touch and low technology during this most vulnerable time in the life of a woman and her family. We are committed to bring midwifery care to the Greenwood area.

 

I am a native of the Upstate, raised in Greenwood. I am a wife and mother of two boys. I am the founder and owner of the Birth Connection. I graduated from Greenville Technical College in 1999 with Associate Degree. Worked in the Women’s Center at Self Regional Healthcare as a registered nurse for many years. I decided to pursue my education, in 2010 I graduated from Lander University with Bachelors in Science of Nursing and University of Cincinnati in 2012 with a Master in Science of Nursing with a focus in Midwifery. I am board certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board with an advance nursing license in South Carolina. I have participated in a variety of women’s health setting such as the home health, hospitals, and birth centers. I am also a CAPPA certified childbirth educator and have a special interest in education and anticipatory guidance during pregnancy. I believe each woman deserves an appointment with enough time to have all their questions answered and to secure health information needed for a healthy birth. I believe that women who are better prepared for pregnancy and birth have less fear of the normal process and therefore have more satisfying birth experiences. Working with expecting families is a true joy; helping them understand the changes in pregnancy, how to deal with the discomforts, offering choices in labor and supporting women, while truly empowering them.
