Why Choose a Midwife?

The Midwives Model of Care is based on the belief that pregnancy and birth are normal processes of life. The term "midwife" literally means "with woman". The philosophy of midwifery care is born out of these two concepts.

Midwives provide individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on support during labor, birth, and postpartum. In addition, midwives provide newborn care for the first 6 weeks of life. This all encompassing care includes emotional and lactation support.
