Benefits of Working with a Midwife

As you navigate the many new aspects of life as a pregnant woman, you likely have a lot of questions about your health, your baby’s development, and your impending labor and delivery.

If you’re looking for guidance and support throughout your pregnancy, it’s time to consider the many benefits of working with a midwife. The midwifery team at Monroe OBGYN is highly skilled and excited to help you through all phases of pregnancy. 

The expertise of a midwife

A midwife is a trained health care professional that specializes in pregnancy care. The Monroe OB/GYN midwifery team provides the highest quality of care throughout each stage of pregnancy and also are present to support your labor and delivery experience.

Working with a midwife gives you a personalized support system and ensures you have access to a variety of resources that optimize your pregnancy experience including:

Your midwife also provides routine prenatal checks to ensure your baby is growing and developing properly throughout your pregnancy. As you head toward your due date, your midwife can help you prepare your body for labor and make necessary arrangements for your baby’s birth.

Why you should consider working with a midwife

Essentially, your midwife becomes a partner in your pregnancy experience. The Monroe OB/GYN midwives already have a solid working relationship with Dr. Martin Pakideh and Dr. Soudabeh Ahadi, so you always receive consistent care.

As a pregnancy can bring up many new concerns, questions, and anxieties in a mom-to-be, you can rely on your midwife to be there offering compassionate emotional support. They’re also a resource for answers to your many questions about you and your baby’s health.

Midwifery services are a great option for women who are carrying one child and have no existing health issues that would create a high-risk pregnancy. (If your pregnancy is considered high-risk, don’t worry - Dr. Pakideh and Dr. Ahadi are happy to monitor your prenatal care and prepare you for labor and delivery.)

The many advantages of working with a midwife

To get to know your unique needs and delivery plans, the midwifery team at Monroe OB/GYN takes time to carefully review your personal and family medical history. Through routine prenatal exams and customized care plans, your midwife can ensure you and your baby are healthy throughout your pregnancy.

While the entire Monroe OB/GYN team provides the highest standard of care, working with one of their midwives offers extra advantages for expectant mothers and their babies including:

Soon after birth, your midwife works closely with you and your new baby to ensure breastfeeding success and is available to answer questions about newborn care and post-delivery recovery.

If you haven’t thought about working with a midwife before, it’s time to consider how midwifery can enhance your experience during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Get to know the midwifery team by calling Monroe OB/GYN or by requesting a midwifery consultation online today.
