What Is Midwifery Care?

  •      Pregnancy and childbirth are natural events. The midwife supports and preserves the normalcy of childbearing, guarding against unnecessary and potentially harmful interventions.
  •      Childbearing is a significant family event. Individuals and families have a right to a safe and satisfying experience within their own cultural forms, including family centered care.
  •      Education is the cornerstone of health care.  Access to information enables people to make informed health care decisions.
  •      Parents have the right to informed choice.  Midwives provide support or and encourage choices regarding the birth attendant and birth setting safest and most satisfying for the family.
  •      Midwifery is an Art and a Science.  We support individualized care within the “Guidelines of Practice” developed by the NTM, and encourage peer review and accountability.
  •    Holistic care is optimum during childbearing.  Midwives should strive to meet the varied physical, emotional, spiritual, sexual and cultural aspects of each person they serve.
