Midwifery Services Provided by CNMs
Our philosophy of care falls in line with the Midwives Model of Care, which includes:
- Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle
- Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support
- Minimizing technological interventions
- Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention
Before, during and after pregnancy, mothers often have lots of questions as they make important decisions that will affect their baby's health – from lactation support to advice in caring for a newborn. CNMs provide this unique support to new mothers and newborns.
Whether you need guidance as you start breastfeeding or have questions about choosing a pediatric care provider for your baby, the midwives at CHRISTUS Health are professionals who know you and your family and are with you through your first weeks of new motherhood.
