HONESDALE, PA — The Wayne County Commissioners have issued a proclamation that October 2-8 is Midwifery Week in Wayne County. This recognizes the importance of the midwives at the Women’s Health Center (WHC), which is part of Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC).
The nurse midwives provide prenatal care and facilitate births at the New Beginnings birthing suites in Wayne Memorial Hospital.
Additionally, they offer postpartum care, annual gynecological exams, family planning and menopause counseling.
All three commissioners commended the program and the entire staff at the WHC for the “personalized great quality of care,” as commissioner Jocelyn Cramer said. Chair Brian Smith added that “all six of my children were born at Wayne Memorial.”
The midwifery program began at Wayne Memorial about 30 years ago. Certified nurse midwife Pat Konzman has been there since the start. “I am so thankful to keep this OB program going, and glad to have the community support,” she said. WMCHC executive director Frederick Jackson said he’s “proud of the OB staff” and noted the “nine percent growth in births this year.”
The WHC is moving to a new location at 626 Park St. (formerly Northeast Eye) early in October. The annual Midwifery Mingle will be celebrated there on Thursday, October 20, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The community is welcome to attend and enjoy the free event.

Unallocated funds offset the increase in the tax levy.
