Chris Butler brings an extensive and varied background in women’s health, labor, and delivery to Northwest Professional Obstetrics and Gynecology . She is committed to women’s health in Arlington Heights and believes in empowering women to make their own choices about pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
After receiving an associate degree in nursing, Chris worked first in medical-surgical nursing and then in labor and delivery. During her time in the labor and delivery unit, she also attended a home birth and eventually decided to work for the doctor that performed the home delivery. Inspired by the home birthing experience, Chris returned to school to earn her bachelor’s degree and midwifery certification. Now, Chris practices as a midwife and helps women make informed choices about labor and delivery, including how to manage pain.
In addition to labor and delivery services, Chris provides well woman exams, birth control counseling, and post-partum healthcare. As a La Leche League leader, Chris also counsels new mothers in breastfeeding.
