Benefits of Midwifery

How a Midwife Can Help You

The Midwifery Model of Care is linked to a number of benefits and positive outcomes for women, their newborns, and their families.

Although all standard medical and obstetric procedures are still available to midwifery patients, in pregnant women cared for by a Certified Nurse Midwife, studies have shown:

  • Lower rates of cesarean birth
  • Lower rates of labor induction
  • Significant reduction in the incidence of third and fourth perineal tears
  • Lower use of regional anesthesia
  • Higher rates of breastfeeding
In addition to these improved outcomes linked to midwifery care, many women who choose to use a midwife for their prenatal care and delivery do so because they feel it offers them a more personalized, high-touch experience than other available options.
