Our midwives have built a reputation for holistic, patient and family-centered care. They encourage you to trust your body, respect your delivery wishes and will put you at ease during this exciting and overwhelming time.
Women choose midwives because they enjoy building a strong relationship with their caregiver. They also appreciate midwives' natural approach to prenatal care, labor and birth. Midwives offer guidance on proper nutrition, medications, comfort measures, sleep and safety. They encourage women to make birthing choices unique to their own needs.
