As a Midwife’s Assistant, my primary role is to support and assist the Midwife in both the clinical and the birthing environment. I often act as the 2nd set of experienced, trained and capable hands whose job description is quite broad and often flexible within the birthing environment.
I have advanced training that includes Birth Emergency Skills, current NRP and Healthcare Provider CPR certifications. In a community birthing environment, I hold a safe birthing space alongside your Midwife.
Once hired, I will attend several prenatal visits, continuing care into the early postpartum period to complement the care of your Midwife.
While I can provide Doula-style support during labor, my primary role is to support your Midwife and your birthing process clinically. If you are birthing for the first time or planning a VBAC, I absolutely recommend exploring the benefits of dedicated Doula support during labor. I am happy to provide you with recommendations!
