Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a branch of medicine focused on managing pregnancies, childbirth, and postpartum care. It plays a pivotal role in ensuring the health and safety of expectant mothers and their babies.

Obstetric care encompasses a wide range of services, from prenatal monitoring to childbirth support and postpartum recovery. You may seek obstetrics care from a midwife when you have a low-risk pregnancy and want fewer medical interventions during labor and delivery. 

How do midwives approach obstetrics differently from traditional medical practices?

At Artemis Midwives, Edine and Chidera approach obstetrics with a unique blend of expertise and compassion.

They believe in empowering women to actively participate in their childbirth experiences. While traditional medical practices often lean toward medical interventions, midwives prioritize natural processes and shared decision-making, ensuring you feel heard and respected throughout your journey.

What services do midwives provide during pregnancy and childbirth?

Edine and Chidera offer a comprehensive range of obstetric services, including:

Prenatal care

Prenatal care includes regular checkups, screenings, and health assessments to monitor the health of the mother and baby.

Labor support

The midwives offer continuous guidance, comfort measures, and emotional support during labor, focusing on empowering you to have a positive and transformative birth experience.

Childbirth education

Education equips you with knowledge about childbirth choices, pain management techniques, and the stages of labor.

Postpartum care

You receive guidance during the postpartum period, offering support for breastfeeding, physical recovery, and emotional adjustments.

Can midwives provide natural childbirth support?

The midwives at Artemis Midwives strongly advocate for natural childbirth when it’s appropriate. They prioritize creating a birthing environment that aligns with your preferences and values, providing tools and resources to manage pain naturally, and offering guidance throughout the labor process.

How do midwives ensure a safe, secure birthing experience?

Safety is the practice’s highest priority. Edine and Chidera closely monitor the progress of your pregnancy, identifying and addressing potential concerns promptly. We collaborate with medical professionals to ensure that you receive the highest standard of care, whether that involves a natural birth or medically necessary interventions.
