Quality care is what happens
Only a select few are fortunate enough to share the birthing experience with Gentle Hands Maternity Care.
In order to make sure you have our utmost care and attention, we only accept a limited clientele every year.
We are not trying to help with as many babies as possible. Our goal is to provide experience, quality, expert and professional care to a limited few.
We have been offering the families in the Tulsa and surrounding area the Midwifery Model Care for over 24 years.
The Midwifery Model of Care is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal events of life.
The Midwives Model of Care includes:
- monitoring the physical, psychological and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle
- providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support
- minimizing technological interventions and
- identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention.
The application of this model has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.
Certified Professional Midwife (CPM)
A Certified Professional Midwife is a knowledgeable, skilled and professional independent midwifery practitioner who has met the standards for certification set by the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) and is qualified to provide the midwifery model of care. The CPM is the only midwifery credential that requires knowledge about and experience in out-of-hospital settings.
Some of the options with a CPM include continuity of care, family participation, water birth, and vaginal birth after a cesarean (VBAC).
Midwives and assistants are dedicated to informed choices and safe, gentle birth for you and your baby.
