Benefits of Midwifery Care

  • Midwives offer individualized care which is based on relationship and caring for the mother, baby and father
  • It promotes current evidence based care and practices
  • There is an increased rate of exclusive breastfeeding and length of breastfeeding
  • Women have increased autonomy in their care and the care for their babies
  • Families find an increased satisfaction in their birth experience
  • Many find midwifery care to be a lower cost in the long run
  • There is a lower c-section and epidural rate among mothers who receive midwifery care
  • Midwives can show more cultural sensitivity towards their clients
  • It promotes a healthy lifestyle with dietary and educational guidance for a healthy pregnancy and birth
  • Midwives hold a belief that pregnancy and birth are a normal life event that resonates throughout a mother’s care. This lends to a transition of women trusting themselves and their body’s ability to give birth
  • You are provided with endless resources and referrals for chiropractic care, childbirth education, doulas, pediatricians, pelvic floor physical therapy and so much more
  • With midwifery care you can expect longer prenatal visits (mine are typically an hour long)
  • The mother receives continual support during active labor and birth
  • Midwives minimize technological interventions, and are educated in how to identify and refer women who need a higher level of care
  • Midwives work in partnership with their clients in the decision making process

And most of all, with midwifery care you are so much more than a patient name on a clipboard. I strive to build relationships with my mamas and their families, and through that I can give them the care they need and deserve.

  1. I loved learning that midwives can offer care that is individualized and can increase the satisfaction in your birth experience. My older sister is pregnant and she wants to find the best option for the birth of her child. I will suggest that she look into getting a midwife to help with the entire pregnancy and birthing process.
