Patient Care Philosophy
Midwifery emphasizes that the birth experience "belongs" to the mother, not to the helping professionals. Midwives partner with mothers and their families for safe and satisfying birth experiences. Every family is different, and it is an amazing privilege to witness the changes and growth that happen during the childbearing year.
