Philosophy

I  believe that childbirth is a normal, natural event ordained by God which left to  nature will proceed to an uncomplicated end in most cases. I believe the midwife's role is to assist the birthing couple in a journey through pregnancy, labor and birth by monitoring the process. I believe that childbirth is a family  centered event and the midwife's role is to enhance, not usurp the family's unity or the father's authority. Except where there is an issue concerning the safety of the mother or child, I believe the parents should have the experience  they desire and I encourage specific requests regarding the birth experience.
