Why You Should Consider Midwifery Care
It can be a hard decision for people to choose where they’d like to receive their healthcare, particularly when it comes to pregnancy and birth. We’re here to offer some key information for those who may be unfamiliar with all the amazing benefits of midwifery care!
Beyond prenatal, birth, and postpartum care, Certified Nurse Midwives offer annual care, gynecological tests, contraceptive counseling, prescriptions, and even more services. In case you need convincing, here are a few reasons why you should give midwifery care some thought.
1. Time and Attention
In the world of healthcare, nothing can compare to the time and attention midwives offer to their clients throughout their care.
Midwives devote their full attention to you and your baby throughout pregnancy. You can have the luxury of discussing all your childbirth concerns and ask unlimited questions when you have midwives around.
2. Education and Training
Our midwives at Sacred Roots are Certified Nurse Midwives, with advanced degrees in providing healthcare. Midwives complete clinical training, which includes hours of direct care and attendance at many births.
Your Certified Nurse Midwife has the clinical experience required in a hospital as well as the interpersonal skills you seek from a natural birth experience.
3. Shared-Decision Making
The term “shared decision-making” refers to a method of making medical care decisions in which both the provider and the client work together to reach a consensus.
This model assures mommies-to-be get their questions answered, make their beliefs clear, and get help making decisions.
At every stage of the procedure, the midwife and their client work together to determine the most beneficial care.
4. Holistic Care
Midwifery care is holistic because it takes into account women’s unique social, psychological, and physiological needs.
Midwives are trained to give women complete healthcare before, during, and after pregnancy. They even guide during preconception, which may facilitate better lifestyle choices in women before conception.
Certified Nurse Midwives can also promote lifetime care by assisting clients in making informed decisions. For example, midwives can give postpartum care and refer nursing moms to lactation consultants if needed.
5. Extra Support
Knowing what to expect during pregnancy can significantly reduce anxiety. Having a midwife there to help you during your pregnancy could have many benefits as they provide extra support, both emotional and physical.
