Our Mission & Philosophy
Our mission is to provide quality, traditional midwifery care to women and infants, a place for building community for families, education on healthy living, and serve as a training facility for other midwives to be educated and create more opportunities for these same things to be made available in their communities.
Our philosophy is that women are capable and strong; that their bodies are capable and strong; that pregnancy and birth is a well-tuned process; that we are the end result of countless generations of successful births and we have inherited this as our birthright from our foremothers; that pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is a closed system and introducing interference in this system introduces risk; that midwives work first and foremost for the woman and her baby; that a high touch, low tech approach is usually the safest for the woman and her baby; and that a woman can be given all the benefits and risks and accept what is best for herself and her family.
