The Midwives Model of Care is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life events. The Midwives Model of Care includes:

  • Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle;
  • Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support;
  • Minimizing technological interventions; and
  • Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention.
    The application of this model has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.

Our Philosophy of Care

We believe:

  • A family has a right to choose where and with whom they birth.  It is an honor to be included in a family’s birth experience!
  • A baby’s life begins at conception. How women care for themselves and are cared for prenatally has a profound impact on both pregnancy and birth.
  • Pregnancy and birth are life changing events that have far reaching consequences. Family centered Midwifery care can positively impact family unity and parenting.
  • Pregnancy is a blessing and a state of health. Creating a safe and loving environment with people chosen by the family allows birth to proceed normally.
  • Families choose birth at home for many different reasons. Midwifery care looks at each family respectfully, as individuals.
  • Midwives offer education, information, guidance and support. We offer family centered Midwifery care by supporting the decisions that families make.
  • We believe that parents are ultimately responsible for their pregnancies, births and children. As such they have both the right and responsibility to become informed and knowledgeable as a couple, that they may share together in the decision making.
  • We practice using evidence and intuition the Midwives work as a team and are all primary caregivers, as much as possible, we attend prenatals, births and postpartum visits together.
