Hallmarks of Our Care

We combine traditional skills and modern medical techniques to safeguard normal childbirth. We leverage medical interventions only when appropriate to ensure you and your baby's well-being.

We work together to make decisions that impact your care. We provide current, evidence-based information in a supportive manner. Families are engaged in their care and have control over their health.

Ample time is given to build a relationship between each family and their midwives. This allows for your care to be personalized according to your family's needs and having a known care provider at your birth.

We collaborate with the hospital and other maternity care professionals if the need arises. We are integrated into the regional medical system and have collegial relationships with other providers.
