"Throughout the world, there exists a group of women who feel mightily drawn to giving care to women in childbirth. At the same time maternal and independent, responsive to a mothers needs, yet accepting full responsibility as her attendant; such women are natural midwives. Without the acceptance and presence of the midwife, obstetrics becomes aggressive, technical, and inhumane," professor G.J.Kloosterman,Chief of OB/Gyn, U. of Amsterdam
Midwives are guardians and keepers of normal, healthy pregnancy and birth. We believe that pregnancy and birth are normal, natural processes of a woman's body, not a disease or medical condition. Birth under the care of a trained midwife has been proven to be a safe and empowering option. Midwives are the true experts in normal birth, and combine time honored traditional skills with the most current evidence based practices to make this time of welcoming a new family member a safe and joyful one.
