What is a midwife?
Nurse-midwives are advanced practice nurses who accompany patients in creating an individualized, holistic birthing experience. We aim to empower women throughout pregnancy and the entire lifespan by providing them with the resources and care they deserve. Midwives can help support a low intervention birth experience, providing the freedom and education for women to make informed decisions.
The Certified Nurse-Midwives of Elite Women’s Health focuses on delivering family-centered natural birth experiences, where women have the power to plan the type of birth experience they desire.
Pregnancy and childbirth are normal life events that are best protected through education and support, which is why midwives are there every step of the way. Our team works closely with you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum to ensure the highest level of clinical care and patient satisfaction.
What are the benefits of midwifery care?
Pregnancy and childbirth is a time where women prioritize their safety and well being more than ever. Midwives are experts at facilitating this transition and making you feel more at ease.
Our philosophy is human-centered, which means we emphasize spending time with our patients, empowering women, and educating and supporting women throughout pregnancy.
We encourage patients to move around and drink during labor. Because of the freedom and support offered, people who utilize the services of midwives are often more satisfied during their childbirth and are in control of the process.
Do you offer home births or zero intervention care?
The midwives of Elite Women’s Health can help support a low intervention or unmedicated birth experience in the hospital environment. We have learned that this is the best link between health and safety and natural birth.
We know that some patients desire a “zero intervention” pregnancy and birth experience. Elite Women’s Health would like to ensure that our midwifery patients are aware that we order prenatal bloodwork, testing, and ultrasounds in order to monitor the health of patient and baby.
In addition, our midwives perform monitoring during labor in the hospital. This means that even for low intervention or unmedicated birth plans, we are unable to offer strictly “zero intervention” prenatal care or labor and delivery.
