The Integrative OB Difference
Three different disciplines working together in an integrative model. Maternal-Fetal Medicine, OB/GYN, & Midwives
Our practice is a partnership between three different disciplines in medicine to create an environment where women not only feel supported by also feel safe, confident, and secure.
Obstetricians are experts in the deviations from the normal labor progression and pattern. When midwives and physicians work together, it gives women the best of both worlds. The midwifery expertise of normal labor and a doctor's experience of the abnormal.
Midwives are experts in natural childbirth. They have extensive training and experience with the variations in a normal labor and are comfortable to handle all different types of labors. Midwives support women and attend to women in labor. A lot of their care focuses on the relationship created in the prenatal period and assisting the mother and her team to best prepare for an excellent labor.
Hallmarks of Integrative Obstetrical care include informed consent, shared decision making, labor support and guidance, and a commitment to the most up-to-date and evidence-based information available.
