Midwifery care goes well beyond traditional obstetrics. Women who choose a midwife will have their own personal guide throughout their pregnancy, and during the labor and delivery. Midwifery care offers a personalized, relationship-based approach to welcoming a new child into the world. It also distinguishes itself in that a midwife emphasizes the importance of post-partum care, and looking after the mother’s emotional and spiritual well-being.
