Do I still need to see an OB when I use a midwife at KBC?
You do not need to see an OB while you are pregnant and seeing one of the midwives from the Katy Birth Center. However, there may be situations where your midwife recommends a visit to the obstetrician. Midwifery is a collaborative practice that involves: midwives, nurses, obstetricians, pediatricians, and other specialists as needed.
Midwifery is different from obstetrics. Midwifery care is provided by professionally trained midwives who practice a wellness and holistic approach to pregnancy, birth and women’s health. Midwifery care focuses on the promotion of health and the enabling of individual empowerment.
