I believe in the Midwifery Model of Care standards set by MANA. The good women who have taught me have instilled in me a faith in the birth process, and a woman's ability to know instinctively the best ways to deliver her baby. My job as a midwife is to create a peaceful safe environment for the birthing family, and give knowledge and care conducive to gentle birth. I love being a midwife and seeing the strength and courage women show in birthing. It is inspiring and the growth that comes will surely benefit not only the family, but the whole community.
