Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Donna Tabas "My number one goal is to help facilitate an empowering birth experience for you culminating in a healthy baby and a healthy mother. Based on the midwifery model of care that birth is a normal, natural, physiological process, each woman has the right to experience this transformative life event with as little medical intervention as possible, but with medical resources readily available should intervention be necessary. I offer individualized, expert and compassionate care to women and their families in a way that can help transform birth into a triumphant event without fear. My practice can offer you the highest level of safety, expertise, flexibility, and individualization. I am a solo "dedicated" midwife who provides extended time, unrushed home prenatal care and is continually present during labor to provide women birth experiences and healthy outcomes that are safe, positive, and empowering in the safety of the hospital setting, with an extremely low Cesarean Section rate. "
