As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I provide women-centered care, meaning the woman is educated in order to make her own choices in her healthcare. I also try to minimize any interventions that are unnecessary. Midwives view pregnancy and birth as a normal, healthy life process rather than a disease or illness. Midwives also provide primary care for women; annual exams, family planning (birth control), menopausal management.
