Healthy pregnant women who want a more home-like birthing experience are choosing a nurse midwife. Jamie Smith is a caring nurse midwife, who believes that women can have the birth experience they desire in a safe hospital environment. She will spend time talking to you about your choices during delivery and how to make the birthing experience wonderful for you and the baby. She will talk to you about nutrition, exercise, breast feeding and quality infant care. Midwives believe that pregnancy and childbirth are normal life processes and mothers are encouraged to individualize the birthing experience by making choices that help them relax and birth at their own pace. Technological interventions are minimized but used judiciously. Medications and other assistance are available if needed. Midwives consult with and refer women to obstetric care when needed. This model allows patients to be taken care of by a midwife, but a safety net is in place for more intensive monitoring or emergencies. In those cases, their care will be taken over by a physician on staff at AllianceHealth Clinton.
