Our Midwives educate each woman to empower her during labor and delivery. Research indicates the woman-centered model of care offered by Midwives can reduce the incidence of birth trauma/injury and cesarean section. Midwives are trained to identify if obstetrical attention is needed and can make appropriate referrals.
Do you like the idea of midwife care, but prefer to deliver at a hospital? We will help manage your care from early pregnancy until approximately 35 weeks, at which time we will coordinate continued care with a provider at the facility where you desire to deliver your baby.
