Midwives

Midwives have specialized training and experience in childbirth, including prenatal care, births and postpartum care. The hallmark of midwife care is client-centered, respectful and hands-on; clients spend as much time as they want to have questions answered, and enter their childbirth experience with confidence, knowledge and self-possession. Midwives work across the world to improve the health of mothers and babies.
