Midwives Model of Care™
The Midwives Model of Care™ is based on the belief that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes.
The Midwives Model of Care™ includes:
∗ monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle.
∗ providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support.
∗ minimizing technological interventions.
∗ identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention.
This woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce birth injuries, trauma, and cesarean sections.
