Midwives offer safe, personalized health care devoted to the unique physical, social and spiritual needs of women.
They care for healthy women before, during and after pregnancy and throughout their lives. Care focuses on maintaining health and encouraging women to make informed decisions about health care. They also assist women during labor and birth, and help them achieve a satisfying experience. Should complications occur, an obstetrician or gynecologist us consulted.
Beyond pregnancy, midwives assist women with yearly exams, family planning, and common health problems and needs.
