The Midwifery Model of Care
"The Midwives Model of Care™ is a fundamentally different approach to pregnancy and childbirth than contemporary obstetrics. Midwifery care is uniquely nurturing, hands-on care before, during, and after birth. Midwives are health care professionals specializing in pregnancy and childbirth who develop a trusting relationship with their clients, which results in confident, supported labor and birth. While there are different types of midwives practicing in various settings, all midwives are trained to provide comprehensive prenatal care and education, guide labor and birth, address complications, and care for newborns." -Midwives Alliance of North America
Birth with a midwife can be a safe and satisfying experience. Research shows that planned home birth with a healthy, low-risk pregnancy with a skilled midwife is as safe as birth in the hospital. Midwives are the guardians of healthy and normal. Midwives are trained to identify conditions which fall outside the spectrum of normal and refer to higher level of obstetrical care when necessary. They provide safe, skilled care including clinical exams, educational information at every visit, ultrasound referrals and lab tests as needed. PAP smears at the beginning of pregnancy or at your 6-week postpartum visit are also available.
