Unless you know what your options are they do not exist.
Midwives provide complete prenatal care, labor & delivery, complete newborn care to at least 6 weeks and complete postpartum care to 6 weeks postpartum. Some work in birth centers, some have offices, and some only do home visits for all of your care.
They will offer you physical and emotional support while your midwives are busy keeping you and your new bundle of joy safe.
The more you know, the more confident you will be in the natural process of birth. Educating yourself and your support system.
They will capture your memories while you stay in the moment of your birth experience.
They are trained to give the gift of relaxation. Self-care is important.
They will help with any breastfeeding issue either in your own home or in their office.
They can help you talk about any issue you need to talk about. If you are feeling the possibility
of postpartum depression, it is very important to discuss this with someone qualified to help.
