Thinking about using a midwife to deliver your baby?

Nurse midwives are less likely to use medical intervention during deliveries than doctors. Suprisingly, their deliveries have fewer complications than doctors'. This is partially due to low-risk births they attend however there are some suprising statisitics that show that a good midwife can attend a birth that has healthier outcomes for mom and baby.

Do you want to learn more about midwives? There is a great article that goes into some detail at

Also, read Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin. This is a fabulous book even if you don't have a midwife attended birth. I learned so much about birthing naturally from her book and it helped me in my Maternity Nursing class!
