Midwife or no midwife? That is the question!

  • Posted by

As you think about your options, take the time to learn more about your choices. What do you want most out of your pregnancy care experience? Out of your birth experience? What do you value? Midwives, and especially Gloria Dominguez  – Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) have the education and years of experience to tailor your health care plan based on current research and what you value most in your care.

Pregnancy care and childbirth is not about the hospital. Pregnancy care and childbirth is not about the person attending your birth. Pregnancy care and childbirth is about YOU!!

It’s about what you need. It’s about what you want. It’s about calming your fears. It’s about talking with you, not at you. It’s about having the childbirth experience that most women want, but few seem to have. It’s about doing things your way in a safe and supportive environment.

When considering a health care provider who will best meet your needs, keep in
mind that the midwives of The Birthing Center of NY not only focus on maternity care, but also on the full range of a women’s health needs. We provide care starting with a woman’s first period until menopause, plus all the important health events in between. What do midwives do? They provide:

  • General health care services
  • Annual gynecologic exams/pap screening/breast exams
  • Family planning needs
  • Diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases
  • Care during teenage years
  • Care for pregnancy, labor, birth and post-partum
  • Peri-menopausal care
