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.
When compared to a planned hospital birth, studies have shown planned home / birth center births have the following benefits:
- Reduced rates of obstetric interventions
- Reduced rates of other adverse perinatal outcomes
- Very low and comparable rates of perinatal death
We believe childbirth is a normal, natural event that is ordained by God and when supported in the most natural way, without unnecessary interventions, will proceed in an uncomplicated delivery of a healthy baby in most cases.
The midwife’s role is to assist the birthing couple in a journey through pregnancy, labor/birth, and the postpartum, and newborn period by monitoring the complete process.
