Questions to Ask When Choosing a Midwife

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.

  • Is the midwife certified? If so, what certifications do they have?
  • Does the midwife have a state license?
  • What kind of experience does the midwife have?
  • Does the midwife have a good reputation?
  • What medical practices or hospitals is the midwife associated with?
  • Do you get along with the midwife upon first impressions?
  • Is your partner comfortable with the midwife?
  • Are they located in a convenient location?
  • Are the midwife’s services covered by your insurance?
  • Does the midwife work with a team that can cover for them during an absence?

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.
