At Oak Grove Midwifery, we take this model of care to heart.  We are believers that birth is a normal physiologic life process.  We believe that by supporting the woman, her baby and the entire family as a whole, we are creating better birth outcomes.

"The Midwives Model of Care is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes.

The Midwives Model of Care includes:

•  Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle
•  Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support
•  Minimizing technological interventions
Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention
•  The application of this woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section."
