Our Student Midwives

Winding River Birth Center is committed to securing the future of out-of-hospital midwifery services by training rising midwives, incorporating them as assistants to your midwife in many aspects of your care. The best way for a student to learn the skills internal to quality midwifery care is to practice hands-on under the supervision and guidance of a seasoned and qualified midwife.  While an experienced staff midwife is your primary prenatal, postpartum and birth care provider, they will be accompanied by students during appointments and at your birth. Students assist the midwives both at the birth center and at home. You will have an opportunity to meet our students during your prenatal visits and to choose whom from among them you would like to have attend your birth as assistant to your midwife. Many of our students are seasoned doulas and they bring this skill set to your birth at no additional cost. You are welcome to decline any aspect of your care from any particular student at any time.

Make An Informed Choice

The Midwives Model of Care is to support you through your own unique ways of moving through pregnancy, labor and birth.  Working together to promote a healthy pregnancy, education is provided to help you make informed decisions about your care.  The progress of pregnancy and labor are carefully monitored and appropriate action is taken if complications arise.
