SARATOGA SPRINGS — Certified Nurse Midwife Jessica Haag recently joined Saratoga Hospital Medical Group and Saratoga OB/GYN and Midwifery at Myrtle Street. 

The growing practice uses a collaborative physician-midwife model of care that has proved to be the best approach for mothers and newborns. Studies show this collaborative model is linked to lower cesarean-section rates—an experience borne out at Saratoga Hospital, which has the lowest C-section rate in the Capital Region.

Haag spent most of her career in the Chicago area, as a midwife at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Chicago and at AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center in nearby Hinsdale, Illinois. She grew up in Saratoga County, graduated from Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School and received an undergraduate degree from Union College in Schenectady. Haag went on to earn a master’s degree from Yale School of Nursing, with a specialty in nurse-midwifery.

Haag is board certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board and is a member of the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
