Why Should You Use Certified professional Midwives?

Midwifery care with a mother and baby

A certified professional midwife will offer individualized and holistic guidance and care for you and your baby’s overall physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Skilled in natural birthing techniques as well as providing comfort during pregnancy for mothers-to-be, midwives prioritize patient safety through evidence-based care with low intervention rates that are hard to come by in a hospital setting. We are trained and educated to provide an expert approach in risk assessment, education, and perinatal care that ensures the safety and well-being of you and your baby. Certified professional midwives prioritize the health of the family, while ensuring optimal conditions for healthy attachment and bonding for the mother-baby and/or parent-baby dad.
