Why Midwifery?

You deserve to be fully seen, trusted and honored.  The care you receive from a midwife empowers and gives you full autonomy over your health and choices.  Birth is viewed as a profound and healthy function of the body and not a medical condition or illness to be managed. Midwives carefully monitor the progress of pregnancy and labor and recommend appropriate management should complications arise.  Midwives are trained and prepared for unlikely emergencies but trust in birth and your body’s innate wisdom.      

Birth is not a medical event.
