Why Should I Choose A Midwife?

Two pink lines appear on the test, then BOOM! Suddenly, you are faced with so many choices. Pink or blue? Separate crib or co-sleeping? Salty or sweet? 😉 One choice that you may not have considered is that of choosing between a traditional doctor (OBGYN or family practitioner) or a midwife.

Pregnancy is a beautiful, magical, special time in a woman’s life when she has the honor and blessing of growing a sweet baby inside of her.
