No two journeys to motherhood are the same – that’s what makes it so miraculous! For some women, embracing the natural process of childbirth is a clear choice, allowing the body to take control and do what women’s bodies have done since the dawn of time. Midwives can help oversee your journey, from prenatal care to postnatal care, all while empowering you to make educated decisions and feel confident in your ability to experience the organic miracle of childbirth. Here in our community, Twin Cities Midwifery has been helping families welcome their new babies with care, attention, and compassion. I’ve compiled some information on why they are one of the most reputable midwifery organizations in town – read for yourself!
Twin Cities Midwifery is home to three Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs), each committed to creating lasting relationships with clients to help each family have a positive, empowering birth experience. They are tirelessly committed to serving all families in their community, including families of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
They work to provide as much education and information as they can, so every family can confidently make decisions throughout their pregnancy, labor, and delivery, all the while actively supporting and encouraging birthing people and their partners.
Once you’ve chosen to use Twin Cities Midwifery for your birth experience, you’ll begin your journey with hour-long prenatal visits. These visits allow your midwife to provide physical and emotional evaluation and care and get to know you! Your team will guide you through your pregnancy with regular visits, lab work, and ultrasounds while serving as a listening ear and a fantastic source of information. Should anything urgent arise, you’ll have access to your midwife 24/7!
Once labor begins, your birthing team (your midwife and a second birth assistant) will join you in your home. They’ll monitor you and your baby to ensure everything goes smoothly. Still, you’ll have total freedom to birth as you see best, choosing to move your body as needed, eat and drink, and surround yourself with the people who love and support you most. Having had the chance to get to know you and your family at your prenatal visits, your birthing team will help you follow your birth plan as closely as possible. Furthermore, they’ll individualize your care as needed.
Once your baby has arrived, your Twin Cities Midwifery team will ensure you’ve established breastfeeding, had a good meal, and are ready to be tucked in for a restful nap. They’ll clean up and return in a day or two to ensure everything is going smoothly and that you’re recovering well.
From the moment you enter their care, you’ll choose the midwife you’ll see throughout your pregnancy and childbirth journey, from prenatal to postpartum. This is one of the things that make Twin Cities Midwifery unique. You won’t bounce around from provider to provider – they genuinely value and honor continuity of care.
You’ll meet all of the midwives in the practice early on, so you can choose who will guide you on your journey from start to finish. Of course, you’ll also be able to choose a backup midwife if your midwife is unavailable; you’ll always be in familiar, capable hands.
If you are considering using a midwife and having a homebirth, contact Twin Cities Midwifery to see if any of their midwives fit your family’s journey! They’ll help you have a positive, beautiful birth experience that you’ll remember fondly for the rest of your life.
