Specialty Medical CareChild Care
Lowcountry Midwifery is proud to offer compassionate, comprehensive, evidence-based midwifery care in the home setting to the women (and their families) of the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire. We believe that education and shared decision-making are the keys to having a healthy and empowered pregnancy and birth experience. Our prenatal, homebirth and postnatal care is tailored to suit the unique needs of each of our expectant mothers.
The Midwifery Model of Care
The Midwifery Model of Care is based on the fact that pregnancy, labor, and birth are normal, healthy life processes. This model gives women the option of a natural birth instead of an interventive and medicalized birth, and it offers a holistic approach to prenatal care and women’s health.
The Midwifery Model of Care includes:
Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle;
Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support;
Minimizing technological interventions; and
Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention.
The application of this woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.
