My philosophy of care is best reflected in the American College of Nurse-Midwives Hallmarks of Midwifery:
“The art and science of midwifery are characterized by the following hallmarks:
-Recognition of menarche, pregnancy, birth, and menopause as normal physiologic and developmental processes
-Advocacy of non-intervention in normal processes in the absence of complications
– Incorporation of scientific evidence into clinical practice
– Promotion of woman- and family-centered care
– Empowerment of women as partners in health care
– Facilitation of healthy family and interpersonal relationships
– Promotion of continuity of care
– Health promotion, disease prevention, and health education
– Promotion of a public health care perspective
– Care to vulnerable populations
– Advocacy for informed choice, shared decision making, and the right to self-determination
– Integration of cultural humility
– Incorporation of evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies in education and practice
– Skillful communication, guidance, and counseling
– Therapeutic value of human presence
– Collaboration with other members of the interprofessional health care team.”
