MIDWIFERY CARE

Midwifery care is not all about an un-medicated, home birth; rather it is about the process that leads up to the birth. It is the compassion, the connection, and the comprehensive care that makes midwifery unique. It is giving women back the power to make decision about their body, their birth, and their baby.
