The Midwives Model of Care includes:
-Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle
-Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support
-Minimizing technological interventions
-Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention
The application of this woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.
