To provide expectant mothers and their partners with home birth and holistic healthcare services in partnership with her and her family.
We believe every woman and her child has a right to quality healthcare that promotes healing and health that:
– respects human dignity, individuality and diversity
– provides complete and accurate information to make informed healthcare decisions
– ensures full involvement and active participation of the mother and her chosen family
members, thus enabling self-determination in healthcare decisions.
The best model of healthcare promotes a continuous and compassionate partnership between mother and midwife and acknowledges the mother’s life experiences and preferences. This means personalized care and healing guided by the midwife’s understanding of the best practices available.
We believe in the natural progression of women’s life cycle events. We honor this by practicing watchful waiting and non-intervention in normal processes. Appropriate use of interventions and technology for current or potential health problems are undertaken with consultation, collaboration and referral with other members of the healthcare team to provide optimal health care.
We affirm that Midwifery Care NYC incorporates these qualities and that women’s healthcare needs will always be well-served.
