In our midwifery practice we provide:

Education and Counseling - If we as consumers are educated and informed we become part of the decision making process. Making informed decisions about your health will help to prepare you for the challenges of raising a family.

Active Participation in Decision Making - If we are actively involved in our health care choices, we share in the responsibility for the outcome. Being an active participant in birth can bring about a feeling of empowerment, allowing one to experience fulfillment and pride in one of life’s most powerful experiences.

Family Centered and Personalized Care - Birth belongs to the family. In our practice, family participation is strongly supported and encouraged.

Personalized Care EQUALS Choice - In our practice, options are explored... The mother may want a completely non-medical birth, with no routine IVs, or fetal monitors; she may want to spend her labor soaking in a whirlpool tub, she may want to deliver on her hands and knees, or on her side ... she may want some pain medication, called "sedation", or she may want epidural anesthesia. In midwifery care, within the boundaries of safety, you get CHOICE.

Time Intensive Care - Providing education, counseling, and talking about choices available in childbirth takes time. In addition we listen to your questions and concerns and try to help you during this transitional time of life. MIDWIFERY CARE IS TIME INTENSIVE.
