Maybe you’ve heard of midwives being used….like 100 years ago when other options weren’t readily available. Maybe the thought is outlandish; who would want to give birth like they did in the dark ages? Why would a woman even consider an out of hospital birth?
Maybe you’ve been curious about it, wondering what all the hype is about. Maybe you’ve seen some amazing pictures and thought how you would love for that to be you, but you’re kind of scared to try.
Obviously, here at Edenway we are passionate about natural birth. We are passionate about the care you receive. We are passionate about giving you the tools you need to have the birth you want.
Here are three reasons to choose midwifery care in an out of hospital birth:
Midwifery care is very personal
Instead of waiting an hour for a 15 minute prenatal you might wait fifteen minutes and have an hour long appointment. You and your midwife build a deep and lasting relationship over the 10 months of prenatal and postpartum care. By the time you’re ready to give birth, you have a foundation of trust with your midwife that is unique to midwifery care. You’ve laughed with her, cried with her, and shared your life with her. She’s there for you because she knows you. She has insight into how to support you because she’s spent time with you.
Midwifery practices preventative care
Instead of reacting to a problem when it arises, midwifery care looks at the whole body and can often foresee problem areas. You and your midwife work together to prevent problems before they can become issues.
Midwifery puts the power in the woman’s hands
The midwifery experience includes a lot of education. The more you know, the more power you have. You are given the privilege of looking at the research and making a decision based on what you feel is best for you and your baby. Not only are you given the right to knowledge, you have someone beside you every step of the way. She is there to encourage you and educate you, standing behind you and the decision you make.
Here at Edenway the midwives take their role seriously. They work endless hours to make sure you receive the best care they can give. You are thought of, prayed for, and loved on. Our staff work hard to make sure the details flow as seamlessly as possible. Our priority is to make your experience the best possible.
