A trained midwife is important when it comes to managing your pregnancy. In order to have a safe and healthy delivery, it’s a good idea to choose a midwife that you personally connect with and trust with the safety of you and your child. You may want to consider asking friends and family members if they’ve worked with a reputable midwife. If that option isn’t available to you, then here are a couple of questions to ask before you decide to choose a midwife.
These questions will give you a much better understanding of the midwife and their experience. This can lead to a more trusting relationship and also more peace of mind.
One of the biggest reasons to take a greater interest in your midwife is the rising maternal mortality rates in the United States. This can be avoided by providing high-quality care to women who are going through a pregnancy, and this can be provided by a trained and caring midwife. Below, we’ve included a useful infographic to help you learn more about maternal mortality.
