The Granite Falls Birth Place … Where Families are Born
Pregnancy and childbirth involve every part of you from selecting a healthcare provider to choosing a name for your newborn. Granite Falls Health provides many options for birth including the midwifery model of care. We emphasize team based prenatal care where the physician and midwife work in partnership to provide women choices in their pregnancy and birth journey.
The midwifery model of care consists of:
- Monitoring the physical, psychological and social well being of the mother and newborn throughout the pregnancy and birth.
- Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, with hands-on support during labor and birth
- Minimizing technological interventions
- Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention
