We believe that pregnancy and birth are healthy natural phases of a woman’s life.
We know that birth is more than a biological process. Giving birth and becoming parents are profound events. We take a holistic approach, valuing emotional, social, and spiritual health as well as the physical health and safety of the mother and her baby.
Our care is woman-centered. We encourage each woman to take an active part in her care. We aim to form a partnership with her, giving support, sharing information, offering choices, and respecting the path she chooses.
We acknowledge the importance of community and family in a woman’s life. We honor our patients’ wishes about who should be with them at all times during their care.
We prefer to minimize the use of unnecessary technology and medical interventions so that women can strengthen their own ability to care for themselves and their baby.
We inform women of the latest medical research and information in order to help them make the best decisions about their care.
We believe that parents and babies thrive in their community, and support building relationships between the new families in our practice, during the childbearing years.
We encourage questions and discussion so that a woman can feel safe sharing her thoughts and feelings with her doctor.
We aim to provide the best care that we can and to continually improve.
