The collaborative Care Model/ Your Birthing Partners

midwife delivery

Midwifery care focuses on health wellness and prevention through education. Midwives encourage women to make decisions based on their individual needs. Empowering women to choose their own path helps to build confidence and strengthen the family.

The midwives of UH Westshore Midwifery Associates work in close collaboration with eight Board Certified OB/GYN Physicians. They also work closely with UH Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) Specialists to evaluate risk factors, provide genetic counseling and perform Level II Ultrasounds. It is in this type of collaborative care model women receive high quality, compassionate care.

The Midwives of UH Westshore Midwifery Associates practice midwifery in a group model, which assures each patient access to Midwifery Care 24/7. Quality of care and patient satisfaction is high because our midwives provide continuity of care to the women of our practice who entrust them. Each patient is encouraged to develop a birth plan as a communication tool for both the Nursing staff and the Midwife attending the birth. It is through 100 percent midwifery coverage with a focus on continuity that the midwives of Westshore Midwifery Associates refer to their group as "pure."
