What are the benefits of working with a midwife during pregnancy, labor and delivery?
In addition to their wealth of knowledge, midwives approach care from an open-minded point of view, meaning each patient will receive care that is personalized to their medical needs and personal preferences. Having a baby is a wonderful—but stressful—phase of life. A midwife will look at the whole picture when managing your prenatal and postpartum care, providing emotional and psychological support along with care that addresses your physical health. Whether the expecting mother prefers a medicated or unmedicated birth, a midwife will assist with techniques to minimize pain and make the birthing process as smooth as possible.
