"Až pochopíme, že se nerodí plod, ale citlivá inteligentní myslící bytost, tedy člověk, až ruce nastavené k práci skloníme, abychom je nabídli k pomoci, až pochopíme, že těhotná se stává bohyní a ve chvíli porodu odchází do svého nitra, kam nikdo nesmí vstoupit, až pochopíme, že jsme jen pozorovatelé, pak jsme porozuměli, co je normální porod."

Jak se rodilo na Farmě? - About The Farm Midwifery Clinic

The Farm Midwifery Center has served mothers, babies, and their families for over 35 years with a practice based on the belief that pregnancy and childbirth are natural life events. Prenatal care, support during labor and delivery, and postpartum supervision are provided by a group of seven midwives credentialed as Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) by the North American Registry of Midwives, and also certified by the state of Tennessee. Central to their work is the Midwives Model of Care© in which the midwife:

  • Monitors the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle.
  • Provides the mother with individual education, counseling, prenatal care, hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum care.
  • Minimizes technical interventions.
  • Identifies and refers women who require obstetrical attention.
  • The statistics for over 2500 births at the Farm Midwifery Center show a C-section rate of less than 2% (compared to a national rate of 32.8%), with low rates of anesthesia use, forceps deliveries, episiotomies, and perineal tears (see preliminary report of 2844 pregnancies, 1970-2010 below).
