If a mother chooses to give birth in a hospital or to receive pain medication, we can accommodate her wishes. We care most about mothers, babies and families. We believe the birth process to be an intimately empowering, deeply rewarding experience. We, as staff members at MMS, do everything in our power to ensure each mother’s birth experience builds her confidence and connection as a mother and as a woman.
Well Woman Exam
Missouri Midwifery provides prenatal care in the form of informational visits, meaningful discussions, and well woman exams. Our well woman exams are more intimate and relaxed than typical. Here, a certified nurse midwife performs any necessary exams, but most importantly, she takes the time to provide a relaxed, open atmosphere. She encourages you to ask questions and provides in-depth answers. Little is more important than providing the perfect environment for your natural birth, and well woman exams create a trusting relationship between you and your certified nurse midwife that will make that environment a reality.
Certified Nurse Midwife Care: Newborn Care, Postpartum Care, and Breastfeeding Support
Midwifery care continues beyond labor and birth. We encourage immediate skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding. This skin-to-skin contact helps stabilize and regulate your baby’s temperature, heart beat, and breathing rate. Skin-to-skin contact often helps your baby latch on during breastfeeding. The benefits of breastfeeding are well documented, and these include providing your baby with basic nutrition, protecting your baby from stomach viruses and other illnesses, reducing your stress levels, and potentially reducing your risk of certain types of cancer.
Filing of Birth Certificate and Newborn Screenings
Initial postpartum visits after delivery begin within 24-48 hours and continue for up to eight weeks after you give birth. We help with filing your child’s birth certificate, and we provide the state-mandated newborn screening. These checkups also help us monitor how well your child is taking to breastfeeding, and we provide any postpartum support necessary.
