Titusville Midwife Services
Your Trusted Guide Through Labor & Delivery
Midwives serve as an expectant mother’s partner through labor, delivery,
and the first few weeks of a newborn’s life. When you start working
with a midwife, you will want someone you feel you can trust and speak
openly with. Your midwife will play a major role during the delivery process,
and may even deliver the baby themselves—it is important that you
feel comfortable speaking up and telling them what you need.
Benefits of Working with a Midwife
An obstetrician plays an important role in your maternity care, but unlike
midwives, they do not have the time to walk patients through every stage
of pregnancy and labor. Midwives work closely with obstetricians to coordinate
a more comprehensive and attentive care plan.
Services provided by a midwife include:
- Prenatal exams
- Ordering tests
- Advising expectant mothers on how to care for themselves and infants during pregnancy
- Education parents on what to expect during labor
- Delivering babies
- Counseling and emotional support
- Creating a birth plan based on the mother’s expectations and preferences
Midwives do not typically perform C-sections. If you prefer to have a vaginal
birth, working with a midwife throughout your pregnancy to prepare for
the event may be in your best interests.
