What is a Midwife?

Midwives are qualified registered professionals who offers a high quality of complete care during pregnancy and who is more like your OB or doctor. Their service includes diagnostic tests, bloodwork, detects complications, address concerns, help mothers with preventive measures, promotes natural birth, wellness and health of the mother and baby, emotional support, assist with delivery, and personalized the services to the mother.

The earlier the midwife is brought in to care for the mother is best. Midwives and parents plan and work together to develop a familiar and reliable relationship that is very helpful during delivery in making informed choices and care of mother and baby.

The primary care of healthy mothers are managed by the midwife unless complications emerge that may result in a consult or transfer to the OB, pediatrician, or family doctor. The midwife stays with the mother throughout the delivery, always providing care and support.


In all cultures, the midwife's place is on the threshold of life, where intense human emotions, fear, hope, longing, triumph, and incredible physical power-enable a new human being to emerge. Her vocation is unique.
