Moreover, we believe women are empowered through health education and encourage active participation. We strive to build long-lasting relationships with our clients based on mutual respect and trust.

Betsy Smith CNM/ARNP MSN, and Alina Palmer CNM/ARNP MN, strive to provide loving care for all of their patients through their pregnancies and post pardum care. We also offer routine gynecological care and family planning. At Della Vita we specialize in a holistic approach to childbirth. Clients are offered progressive relaxation, massage, acupressure and other pain management options.
