How Midwives care for your whole person
Midwives are trained healthcare professionals who care for women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. They focus on the physical, emotional, and social well-being of the woman and her family and strive to provide personalized, holistic care that addresses the woman’s unique needs and preferences. Midwives often collaborate with obstetricians and other healthcare team members and can provide care in various settings, including hospitals, birth centers, and homes.
Midwifery care typically involves:
- Providing education and support to help women make informed decisions about their care
- Monitoring the physical and emotional well-being of the woman and her baby throughout pregnancy, labor, and delivery
- Providing non-medical pain management techniques, such as massage, hydrotherapy, and breathing exercises, to help women cope with the discomforts of pregnancy and childbirth
- Assisting with the delivery of the baby, including the use of medical interventions when necessary
- Providing postpartum care and support to the woman and her family, including breastfeeding support and newborn care education
Midwives are committed to promoting normal birth and supporting women in their choices for childbirth. They believe in the strength and capability of women and strive to empower them to be active participants in their own care.
