Can I use a midwife if I have a high risk pregnancy?
Yes! At Elite Women’s Health, our team of midwives prioritizes collaboration with our physicians and work closely together in order to maintain optimal health of mother and baby throughout pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
During labor and delivery, we are in constant communication with the physician about the plan of care. Midwives are trained in the natural process of birth. While you can utilize the services of a midwife in a higher risk pregnancy, a physician will be required to facilitate breech birth, preterm labor and delivery and emergency c-section deliveries.
How is the labor process facilitated?
Our Certified Nurse-Midwives can help with your low intervention birth process. This is a “natural” process, where certified nurse-midwives help ease the pain of pregnancy. Low-intervention birth programs provide alternatives for pain management including birth assistance, hydrotherapy, fetal monitoring, and specialized labor management.
Midwives are not just for childbirth!
The midwives of Elite Women’s Health provide comprehensive, holistic gynecologic care for women of all ages. We provide comprehensive well-woman services throughout the lifespan, and you can continue utilizing the services of our midwifery team indefinitely.
We provide services such as full spectrum gynecology, annual checkups, and contraception. Conditions and concerns related to sexual or reproductive health is within our specialty, and we provide a comprehensive range of well-women care.
After childbirth, it can be beneficial to have a sense of familiarity and continuity regarding your well-woman care, which midwives provide.
