  • 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.
