Model of Care
Comprehensive, Personalized Prenatal Visits
I always accommodate individual needs regarding prenatal care. Unlike the typical 10-15 minute prenatal visit with hospital-based providers, appointments with me last at least 45 minutes, and address not just your and your baby's physical health, but the other elements that make you YOU.
Relationship-Based, Family-Centered Care
I provide continuous and compassionate care through your pregnancy, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding, and beyond. Family-centered care is at the heart of all my interactions with you.
I believe midwifery is an equal partnership between the midwife and client. All care is fully discussed, as I believe in the power of informed consent and informed refusal. Questions are always encouraged and welcomed. Shared decision-making is at the heart of the Midwives Model of Care.
Evidence-informed practice consists of three components: utilizing my clinical expertise, evaluating best available research evidence, and considering my clients' values and individualized needs. Evidence informed practice is central to ethical, quality care. It improves client care and facilitates informed choice.
