About Us

The Midwife philosophy focuses on pregnancy, birth, and women’s cycles as normal and healthy processes. We discuss many aspects of a woman’s life: work, family, diet, exercise, habits, spirituality, and emotions. Midwives do not perform surgery or handle complicated cases, but instead take time to focus on promoting health. In labor, the midwife is involved for the entire process to support the woman and family, and to ensure that all is progressing normally. We are trained to handle complications if they arise, and to assist on Caesarean sections if necessary.

With CNM care, a healthy woman is more likely to:

  • Experience an uncomplicated pregnancy and birth
  • Receive time devoted to questions, education and counseling
  • Partner in her health care decisions
  • Receive breastfeeding support
  • Experience fewer medical interventions in labor
  • Avoid Caesarean sections
  • Avoid episiotomies
  • Receive consistent, expert support throughout labor and delivery
