CHOOSE MIDWIFE OR DOCTOR FOR PREGNANCY CARE

CHOOSE MIDWIFE OR DOCTOR FOR PREGNANCY CARE
Illustration
Midwife in word mean "with woman", the Midwifery promotes for normal childbirth and prevention of health problems for pregnancy woman. The Midwife can give the treatment for necessary care of healthy woman and the baby throughout pregnancy, birth and for six weeks afterward.

When you are thinking about the choice of midwife or doctor, it will be your philosophy of pregnancy and childbirth that will determine the best route. For women who have a more medical view of having a baby, a doctor is usually the best choice. Even an obstetrician or a family practice doctor will be the choices. An obstetrician is one who is best suited to caring for women with high risk pregnancies or those who will need a cesarean section for a medical reason. A family practice doctor sees an entire family in the medical practice and has a less medical approach to childbirth overall.

What the medical approach to pregnancy and childbirth consists of is believing that anything can go wrong at any moment and trying to be prepared for that at all times. While this approach has value in the health of mom and baby, it also tends to create more fears assuming that women cannot have babies without all the medical interventions available today like fetal monitoring and Pitocin inductions.

The midwifery model of care, either direct-entry midwife choosing homebirths of certified-nurse-midwives delivering in any setting, consists of a more passive approach and the belief that women's bodies know how to give birth and don't need medical technology's assistance. However, midwives do acknowledge the need for medical care if a problem arises.

So once you decide how you feel about pregnancy and birth, you can start looking around and interviewing potential care providers. If you are unsure, check into both doctors and midwives. And even then there can be inconistencies as all people are not created equal. One midwife is not like another one and the same holds true of doctors. So think carefully as you look for a practitioner and realize that your needs and desires may change through your pregnancy and switching to someone else can remain an option.

Some reasons why some pregnancy woman choose the midwife :

  • A midwife can give more time to you during your regular appointments.
  • A midwife will be with you from the time you arrive at the hospital till after delivery.
  • People who want a natural birth are also one reason.

We discussed these issues with our doctor as well as the midwife and observed that:

  • Both the doctor and the midwife give you about equal attention as a patient.
  • Since our doctor practises with a group of Gynecologists and Obstetricians, there is always someone at the hospital delivering babies. We were assured that the doctor will be there the whole time and not just arrive at the last minute.
  • We don’t really care about natural birth. Any medical technology that helps in pain relief or makes delivery easier would be most welcome.

Suppose you may have not started the pregnancy with any high risk conditions, something like multiple pregnancy, but you have to realize that you have one and need to seek additional care. As always, consider your options and do not feel obligated to any one practitioner for feelings other than your own knowledge that they will give the care that you want and need.
