Midwifery Philosophy

Midwifery care creates a partnership that is individualized, empowering, and supportive. It is based on a respect for pregnancy as a state of health and childbirth as a normal physiological process and a profound event in a person’s life. Fundamental to midwifery care is the understanding that a person’s caregivers will respect and support them so that they may give birth safely, with power and with dignity.
