At DeKalb Health, we believe your birth experience should happen your way. While most mothers choose a traditional, physician-led delivery, more and more women are opting to partner with a midwife instead.

A midwife is a trained health professional who cares for healthy women during labor, delivery, and after the birth of their babies.

Midwifery is collaborative and mother-led, encouraging a natural childbirth experience. A woman-centered model of maternity care, midwifery is practiced to some degree in nearly every culture worldwide.
