Women have been giving birth for many thousands of years. The process of labor and birth has remained the same, but the ways in which women give birth has changed dramatically over the past 100 years. Fortunately, women giving birth today have more choices in childbearing than ever before.
As Certified Professional Midwives we uphold the Midwives Model of Care. 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 to incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.
