Supporting Women and Families
through Pregnancy & Postpartum
Traditional Birth Attendants were once the primary caretakers for expectant families and provided a more intimate model of care. Their indigenous practices predate modern medicine by several millennia. These women were taught extensively womb health, birth, and newborn care through the apprenticeship mode. During this time, birthing families were cared for holistically, and serviced with respect and dignity.
Mystic Momma Philosophy
The Midwives Model of Care™ is a fundamentally different approach to pregnancy and childbirth than contemporary obstetrics. Midwifery care is uniquely nurturing, hands-on care before, during, and after birth. Midwives are health care professionals specializing in pregnancy and childbirth who develop a trusting relationship with their clients, which results in confident, supported labor and birth. Midwives are trained to provide comprehensive prenatal care and education, guide labor and birth, address complications, and care for newborns. The Midwives Model of Care™ is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life events. The application of this model has been proven to reduce to incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section. The Midwives Model of Care™ includes:
