Midwifery Philosophy

Midwifery care creates a partnership with women 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 woman’s life. Fundamental to midwifery care is the understanding that a woman’s caregivers will respect and support her so that she may give birth safely, with power and with dignity.
