Why choose Intrinsic Midwifery?
There is strong evidence supporting the Midwifery Continuity of Care Model throughout Australia and the rest of the world. Very few women actually realise that they have the option to choose a Private Midwife for their care, but it is becoming more common as this Pandemic continues.
Many women look for a Continuity of Care model, as they wish to have the same care provider throughout pregnancy and into their postnatal journey, and they wish to benefit from what the model can provide them.
The Cochrane review states “The main benefits were that women who received midwife-led continuity of care, were less likely to have an epidural. In addition, fewer women had episiotomies or instrumental births. Women’s chances of a spontaneous vaginal birth were also increased and there was no difference in the number of caesarean births”.
Pregnancy, labour, birth and the postnatal period is such a special and important time for women and their families, and many women wish to hire a professional who will guide and support them throughout this period.
Private Midwifery care through ‘Intrinsic Midwifery’, is one option for women, in which this type of care occurs.
We can provide antenatal and postnatal appointments in the comfort of your own home, bringing all necessary equipment required to assess you and your baby.
