Women have the right to seek care that not only is medically safe for themselves and their baby, but that fits their lifestyle and recognizes and respects their individual, social, spiritual and economic needs.
Because the family is the cornerstone of our social structure, maternity care must support and promote unity within the family. Separation of family members, including siblings is to be avoided.
Childbirth is a peak life experience with long-term effects on the development of both mother and baby.
Childbirth is viewed as a natural health process. Confidence in the physiologic function of the body to cope with childbirth is promoted in all aspects of care.
Education of the client is an essential, integral part of midwifery care. With knowledge freely imparted from their health care giver, women are able to assume responsibility for health maintenance and effective utilization of medical care.
Our philosophy is one of family centered care. Pregnancy and birth are important life events not medical conditions.
A woman is a partner in the decisions made during her pregnancy. She shares responsibility with her care provider.
