Up Close and Personal: Midwives Offer Personalized Care

San Joaquin General Hospital is pleased to offer midwifery services around the clock to our laboring patients. Midwives are care providers who “focus on the needs of the individual and family for physical care, emotional and social support and active involvement of significant others according to cultural values and personal preferences." The midwives see many of the maternity patients in the clinic and deliver over half of the babies born in the Family Maternity Center. The midwives care includes prenatal visits and “hands–on” care throughout labor, delivery, and right after. This results in less chance of complications, fewer interventions, and a healthier birth for you and your baby.

In addition many women who experience the care provided by a midwife report feelings of great satisfaction and empowerment! Many of the midwives also speak Spanish.
