Midwifery care is becoming increasingly popular as more women want to be the one in charge of their own birth plans as they prepare to bring new life into the world. Whether you are recently pregnant or expecting your little one in a few short months, here are some of the common reasons why so many women have told me that they decided to choose midwifery care as their preferred setting:
- The level of care is greatly increased—Midwifery care will help to provide information during the many stages of your pregnancy and labor, and all while keeping your health at the very forefront of the birthing process. As an experienced midwife, I know how important it is in to never force any ideas that are unwelcome, and promise to give you the information you need to make wise decisions throughout your journey.
- No rush—Giving birth is a transformative and life-changing experience, and as such, mothers and their partners should never feel rushed at any stage. Whether it be one question or dozens, each inquiry should be addressed thoroughly and treated with as much attention and detail as the last.
- Power—As your midwife, I provide information and support while leaving the power to choose in your hands. I have seen that the women who have the most positive birth experiences are the ones who take the time to thoroughly educate themselves on their many options, choose their birth attendants, and are always supported in their choices.
