Birth Unlimited's philosophy is based on the midwifery model of care, in which pregnancy and birth are normal life events.
The midwifery model of care involves:
-Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle.
-Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support.
-Minimizing technological interventions.
-Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention.
The application of this woman-centered model has proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma and cesarean section (Midwives of North America).
