Midwifery Resources

    Research Midwifery!

    We encourage all women and their partners to research midwifery and out-of-hospital birth.  There are many studies that indicate out-of-hospital birth with a certified professional birth is as safe as hospital birth for the mother and newborn. In addition, women report many benefits related to midwifery care.
