What is the difference between a nurse and a midwife?

Nurses and midwives may both specialize in working with pregnancy or birth, but midwives are trained to manage and make the care decisions while nurses are trained to assist the primary care provider. 

Is homebirth safe?
Homebirth is a safe option for low risk healthy pregnancies that carry to full term. The Simply Birth midwives monitor your risk factors during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum to insure everyone is kept safe. To learn more about the safety of homebirth, check out these studies. 
What does a midwife do when labor occurs?

A doula is hired by the pregnant person to support them during labor. A doula does not have any medical training and works primarily with comfort measures and moral support. A midwife has medical training and is a primary care provider during the childbearing period.

Types of Midwives

A CNM, as the name suggests, is a nurse who has also trained to become a midwife. CNM’s can assist women with natural childbirth, but they are also allowed to prescribe medication, including Pitocin or an epidural. However, they are not allowed to conduct a cesarean section. It is at this point the overseeing obstetrician would step in.

CPM‘s or midwives do not practice nursing. Therefore, they are only allowed to attend home births. These midwives have completed formal training and certification through an independent organization and have passed an exam through the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM). These midwives often work with home birth supportive OB’s who are able to provide any needed medical care, though there is no formal relationship with a doctor. This midwife/doctor relationship provides an opportunity for special prenatal tests such as an ultrasound during the pregnancy or birth.

Lay midwives may have vast practical experience and be very skilled, but they have not completed any formal training or certification through an organization. These midwives are only able to attend at home births. However, they may also work beside an OB or other physician.

What are the benefits of homebirth?
 
 The latest research on planned home birth, released in 2014 by the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA), found that among 17,000 families:
  • Better outcomes for babies: 97% of babies were carried to full-term, and weighed an average of eight pounds at birth. Only 1% of babies were transferred to the hospital after birth, most for non-urgent conditions.

  • Low rates of intervention: Only 4.5% of the 17,000 study participants required oxytocin augmentation and/or epidural analgesia. This is much lower than average for the United States, where 26% have oxytocin augmentation and 67% have epidurals.

  • Low rates of cesarean birth: The 2014 MANA study also found that of the 17,000 planned home births, only 5.7% ended up birthing their babies via cesarean. This is compared to the national average of approximately 31% for full-term pregnancies.

  • High VBAC success rate: For low-risk individuals, the chance of having a vaginal birth after cesarean ranges from 68-87% when birthing outside the hospital.

At Simply Birth we work with you to safely deliver your baby. Homebirth is our passion, but we support your choice of where to give birth. At home you have many options of where to give birth. Midwives do it in any position! We have caught babies inside, outside, standing, squatting, on the floor, on the bed, in the bathroom, in the kitchen – the possibilities are endless! We give women choices to make their birthing experience their own. Wondering about home birth near me? Simply call us!

Other benefits of choosing home birth with midwives:

We will have thorough conversation about your needs, preferences, and values, your individual health, and the evidence regarding the options available to you. We respect you as the expert of your own body and your baby’s primary care provider.

  • Continuity of care: Your midwives will follow you throughout the course of your prenatal, birth, and postpartum care. At every point in your parenting journey, you will see the familiar, comfortable, friendly face of your very own midwives.

  • Evidence-based care: We stay current on the research around pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and breastfeeding so that we can provide up-to-date information to assist you in your decision-making.

  • Your own environment: For many families, the comfort and security of your own home cannot be matched. You choose who attends your birth and who cares for you. You choose what to eat and drink. Walk, dance or sleep uninterrupted – it’s your birth!

  • Incredible postpartum care: From the first minutes of your baby’s life to your six week postpartum checkup, Simply Birth provides attentive, personal support and education necessary for your baby’s growth, help your family bond with your newborn, develop long-lasting breastfeeding or chestfeeding relationships, and heal your body in the postpartum.
