Midwives and Complex Births

What if I have a midwife and something goes wrong during birth? What if I need a c-section?

The Rochester Regional Health midwives work closely with expert obstetrician/gynecologists throughout our health system. A physician is physically present in the labor and delivery area 24-7 for consultation and medical intervention as needed.

Should you need a Cesarean Section, the midwife will remain with you during surgery and continue to support you during your postpartum hospital stay. Our Rochester Regional Health Childbirth Centers support mothers skin-to-skin bonding with their babies in the operating room.

If issues arise at any time during prenatal or gynecologic care, collaborating physicians are also available for consultation or referral.
