Our Mission

So you are planning or expecting a baby in the near future? How fantastic! We wish you joy on your journey! Here at Womancare Birth & Breastfeeding Center we strive to offer the ultimate in safe, comprehensive, holistic, women centered care. We give great time and attention to each and every mother and baby. We carefully limit how many births we attend each month so that we can give the best individualized care. We never want you to feel that you are “just a number”.

It is our special mission to meet with you and hear your hopes and dreams for your birth. We never feel these parts of a woman’s heart and mind are trivial or unimportant. This is because we know that a woman’s heart, mind, body, and spirit are all intertwined to make up her entirety.

We practice the Midwives Model of Care. We are considerate of your wishes and respect your autonomy. We consider you to be in charge of your body, your baby and the care you both receive. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your birth should be an empowering experience.

The Midwives Model of Care

MONITOR

Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle

PROVIDE

Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support

MINIMIZE

Minimizing technological interventions

IDENTIFY

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. Copyright (c) 1996-2004, Midwifery Task Force, Inc., All Rights Reserved.

Our Philosophy

We believe birth is a normal healthy experience and out of hospital birth is the oldest and most excellent option for women in good general health. Every woman has the right to safe, satisfying health care and every family has the right to participate in decisions regarding pregnancy and birth, and to experience a family-centered birth. We have a strong belief that not only is every woman different, but also each pregnancy and birth. For this reason, we use few interventions and let labors unfold at their natural pace and in their unique way as long as it is within our scope of practice. As midwives, we are facilitators of natural processes, and the gatekeepers of safety. We believe in and practice non-intervention, as long as it is safe.
