A Brief Introduction to Midwifery, Point MacKenzie, Alaska

If you’re in the beginning stages of your pregnancy, you may have started the process of choosing a maternal care specialist. While OB-GYNs are crucial to a healthy delivery, you can also opt to enlist midwifery services for the same results. Midwives offer a more personal level of care than you would receive at a clinic or hospital, and will be there to guide you through every stage of pregnancy including labor, delivery, and postpartum. 

What You Need to Know About Midwifery 

What Is It? 

midwiferyA midwife is a trained and licensed health care professional who provides comprehensive care for the mother and child during and following pregnancy. They may also deliver the baby in the comfort of the mother’s home or a hospital or clinic. You can choose a midwife in place of an OB-GYN or have them work alongside your doctor. 

What Are the Benefits?

A midwife gives personalized attention and individualized care you might not find with a typical OB-GYN. They monitor both the physical and psychological well-being of the mother throughout every stage of pregnancy and extend counseling opportunities as well as prenatal and postpartum care. 

What Are Their Services? 

While the services depend on the certification and licensing of each midwife, they typically include annual gynecological exams, family planning, and labor and delivery support. They also educate the mother on breastfeeding, nutrition, exercise, and other areas to ensure a healthy pregnancy.
