When might I use midwife services?

Midwife services are an excellent choice for women who'd like to have as natural a labor and delivery as possible. Midwives typically care for healthy women and babies with no known issues that could make their labor high risk.

You can choose midwife services if you'd prefer to give birth at home or in a birthing center rather than the hospital. Your midwife helps you through your labor pains and the baby's delivery, carefully monitoring vital signs and progress to ensure things are proceeding as they should.

If any problems arise that require medical intervention, your midwife contacts your OB/GYN, who can be with you quickly if necessary.

Can I use midwife services if I have a high-risk pregnancy?

The midwives at Obstetricians & Gynecologists, PC, provide services to women classed as higher risk, typically working in combination with an OB/GYN.

The term high-risk pregnancy covers a range of issues, from healthy women who are over 35 or who have opted for VBAC (vaginal birth after a cesarean) to women and babies who have potentially life-threatening health conditions.

The level of care your midwife provides is likely to relate to the nature of the risk, and they work with your OB/GYN to optimize your pregnancy. Your midwife may also support your OB/GYN during more complicated births and cesarean sections.
