The Integrative OB Difference
Doctors and midwives working together in an integrative, modern model. Our practice is a partnership between midwives and physicians to create an environment where women not only feel supported but also feel safe, confident, and secure. Midwives are experts in natural childbirth. They have extensive training and experience with the variations in a normal labor and are comfortable to handle all different types of labors. Midwives support women and attend to women in labor. A lot of their care focuses on the relationship created in the prental period and assiting the mother and her team to best prepare for an excellent labor. Obstetricians are experts in the deviations from the normal labor progression and pattern. When midwives and physicians work together, it give women the best of both worlds. The midwifery expertise of normal labor and a doctor’s experience of the abnormal.
