Midwifery

What's a midwife?

A midwife is a medical professional who provides care to healthy low risk women and infants from pregnancy and birth through six weeks postpartum. Midwives are trained in physiological birth, and specialize in individualized, woman centered care. In Texas, licensed midwives are experts in out of hospital births and provide care in either home birth or birth center settings. 

"The word midwife literally means “with woman”. With woman when she’s growing, when she’s laughing, when she’s pushing, when she’s facing fear. With woman as she becomes Mother. With woman in all seasons, and in every version of her story. That is my real job." -Ashley King LM, CPM
