The strengths of midwifery care: informed consent, shared decision making, and collaboration.

Midwives put birthing families at the center, providing evidence-based information. Families work together with their midwives to make the decisions that are right for their birth and their baby. And when needed, midwives collaborate with other health professionals to help ensure that child-bearing families have access to a full-spectrum of care that meets their unique needs. Learn more in this new video, co-produced by Woman In The Moon films.
