Midwifery Care

Midwifery Care

The journey of pregnancy and giving birth are natural processes for which a woman’s body is well designed. Women possess the ability to nourish a safe and healthy pregnancy, and the strength and stamina to birth their babies naturally. Midwives help women to surround themselves with positive elements during the childbearing year such as self-education, a nourishing diet, a healthy lifestyle, and planning the ideal care during this season of life. Our practice offers comprehensive prenatal care, childbirth education, continuous support during labor and birth, postpartum care in your home, and well-woman gynecological services.

Around the world, most women labor and give birth with midwives, as they have since the dawn of time. Today, our midwives empower mothers to take responsibility for their health through individualized care, counseling, education and support to women and their newborns. In the location of your choice, we provide continuous assistance during labor as the mother does the amazing work of birthing her baby. During postpartum visits, our care continues by supporting breastfeeding and monitoring the health of mother and baby.

Nurse-midwives and professional midwives are trained to combine the time-honored art of midwifery with the benefits of modern medical care when needed. Our goal is always to have a healthy mother and a healthy baby! Midwifery care has been proven to be a safe, nurturing alternative to physician-attended hospital birth for healthy women. When the body’s own instinctive knowledge is supported, most often pregnancy and birth unfold in a natural fashion, and unnecessary medical intervention can often be avoided.
