Women in the United States are learning that pregnancy and childbirth are normal, healthy processes, not diseases. They are finding out that they and their families can benefit from the care of a midwife.

The Midwives Model of Care includes prenatal visits and "hands-on" care througtout labor, birth and right after. It results in less chance of complications, fewer interventions, and a healthier birth for you and for your baby.

Women are discoevring that the hospital is not the only option for safe birth. Women are most likely to labor best in a place where they feel free, safe and private, with attendants whom they know and trust.

Many women find that they feel most comfortable at home, with the ongoing attention and nurturing care of a midwife, trained in gentle, natural, safe childbirth - someone who is an expert in normal birth and provides the Midwives Model of Care.

Pregnancy and childbirth involve every part of you. Feelings, hopes, fears, physical and practical needs, and spiritual or religious beliefs can all affect your pregnancy and birth. A midwife providing the Midwives Model of Care addresses all of these aspects to help you give birth naturally , safely and confidently. In addition, women who experience this type of care report feelings of great satisfaction and empowerment!!!

Compared to standard medical management, the Midwives Model of Care is a fundamentally different approach to pregnancy and childbirth.
