what is a midwife?
A midwife is a caretaker of families and their babies and the guardian of normal birth. Midwives have attended families at birth from the beginning of time. They were the wise ones of the village; those that truly knew how to be "with" someone giving birth.
In more recent years we’ve moved away from midwife-attended birth, assuming that more technology meant better outcomes. We have found, in fact, that the opposite is true; statistics have shown that outcomes at trained midwife attended births are as good or better than OB attended births, with fewer medical interventions and all the risks related to intervening in a natural process.
Midwives provide the skills and knowledge needed from the first pap smear, the childbearing cycle and through menopause.
