The guiding principles of our work as Midwives are; continuity of care, evidenced based decision making, appropriate use of technology, culturally appropriate care, education, trust in our clients and an abiding trust in birth. When pregnant people’s voices are heard, when they receive the education and resources they seek, when they can bring their dynamic spiritual-emotional-psychological selves and when they are attended by a skilled and supportive professional, the likelihood of an empowered birth experience is most possible.
