MIDWIVES IN SASKATCHEWAN
We believe that pregnancy and birth are natural physiological processes which in most cases proceed with minimal intervention. Midwifery empowers women, their families and even communities to work together in nurturing the unborn baby, supporting the birthing experience and providing a foundation for healthy growth and development of the child, and the family.
Midwives support birthing in the home, hospital or another appropriate out of hospital centre.
Planned births provided by a licensed professional midwife are as safe as hospital births with fewer interventions.
Midwives partner with women, encouraging informed decision making where the woman's values, beliefs and expectations are respected. At the centre of care by midwives, is the woman and her family.
