Midwives Offer Personal Care around the clock to our laboring patients.
Midwives are care providers who “focus on the needs of the individual and family for
physical care, emotional and social support and active involvement of significant
others according to cultural values and personal preferences." The midwives see
many of the maternity patients in the clinic and deliver over half of the babies
born in the Family Maternity Center. The midwives care includes prenatal visits
and “hands–on” care throughout labor, delivery, and right after. This results in
less chance of complications, fewer interventions, and a healthier birth for you
and your baby.
In addition many women who experience the care provided by a midwife report
feelings of great satisfaction and empowerment!
