Why Midwifery?

Our Midwifery care is a modern interpretation of an ages old practice. The midwifery model of care emphasizes normalcy and wellness. It empowers women and gives them greater ownership of their health and choices during pregnancy. Our role as your midwives is to encourage you in your own ways of moving through pregnancy, birth and mothering. Together with our clients we carefully monitor the progress of pregnancy and labor, and recommend appropriate management should complications arise.

Birth is not a medical event,
it belongs to you.

Our Philosophy

Evidence-Based Practice refers to a thoughtful integration of the best and most recent evidence combined with clinical expertise. As such, it enables midwives and our clients to address health care questions with an evaluative and qualitative approach. Evidence based decisions flow from a process that includes assessment of current and past research, clinical guidelines and other information resources in order to determine the best course of care.

Homebirth offers women and birthing people an immense sense of empowerment in all aspects of care. In the comfort of one’s own home surrounded by loving arms, laboring people naturally feel remarkably less inhibited in expressing their natural and individual responses to labor and birth. There are no rules on where to birth, how to birth and who will be there.

This is your birth.

The midwives in our practice want the birth of your child to be a life-changing, empowering, and beautiful experience for the entire family. We consider childbirth to be a sacred and profound life event and it is our great honor to be a part of your journey.
