Benefits of Midwife Care
The benefits to the mother and the baby starts with personal relationships
and ends with better birth outcomes and tailored in-home support.
Continuity of carer
See one practitioner to develop a long-term, trusting relationship with your Midwife who’s trained in the normal, natural and everyday.
Education from one person
Feel more positive, confident and ready after education, information, tips and advice from one in-the-field care provider.
Shorter wait times with longer appointments allow for questions, education and debriefing in a comfortable in-home or in-clinic setting.
You will be better prepared, therefore calmer, for labour and birthing, and settle into Motherhood easier with your Midwife’s on-call expertise and support.
You are more likely to…
- have a normal birth;
- have a more positive labour and birth;
- be satisfied with your maternity care; and
- successfully breastfeed your baby.
Your baby is more likely to…
- be born at term;
- be born healthy;
- receive skin-to-skin contact early; and
- bond better with you.
