Midwives Model of Care
Midwives Alliance of North America
Healthier Outcomes, Healthier Communities
The countries with the lowest mortality and morbidity rates for mothers and infants are those in which midwifery is a valued and integral pillar of the maternity care system. The midwifery model is a low-tech, high-caring model that produces excellent outcomes for low risk women.
The Midwives Model of Care is a nurturing approach to the normal life events of pregnancy and childbirth that encourages developing a trusting relationship between families and their midwives, which results in safer and more confident labor and births.
