Midwife Model of Care


 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.
