Is midwifery care right for me?

Midwives specialize in low-risk pregnancy, meaning that clients of midwifery care are in generally good health and have a healthy, normal pregnancy. Specifically, Tidelands is an appropriate maternity care provider for people who:

  • Are pregnant with one baby (i.e. not twins or triplets)
  • Have not had a previous cesarean section
  • Are generally in good health

People may also be great candidates for midwifery care if they:

  • Are under 18 years of age
  • Are over 35 or 40 years of age
  • Conceived using IUI, IVF, or other assisted reproductive technology
  • Have well controlled asthma or some other chronic conditions
  • Have well managed anxiety or depression
  • Have a high BMI
  • Have a history of preterm labor or preterm birth
