Midwifery Services

I am an independent midwife. I offer continuous care and evidence based services and information, through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period, as well as in other areas related to women’s health (menarchy, contraception…) Information is necessary to make informed choices. As a midwife I wish every woman has enough information to be able to make the choices that are best for her.

I believe in the continuous midwifery care model, wich is not the one that takes place in Spain. In Spain the Medical Model of care prevails . Research shows that in straight forward pregnancies and birth, the Midwifery Model of care has better results for women and her babies. We walk by your side through pregnancy, labour, postpartum, breastfeeding and baby’s  early days.

Holistic midiwifery services have also in account emotional, psychological and social needs, as well as physical care and necessities. Emotional wellbeeing is just as important as physical health.

I believe that:

  • BIrth and labour are not medical events but a family event for women and their familes, in transition to maternity.
  • In straight forward pregnancies I believe a woman’s body is perfectly designed to give birth and feed her baby. With close care and no interventions almost everytime it’s going to turn out fine.  When something  goes wrong and the need for intervention arises, it is welcome when it is informed, agreed upon, and  practiced with respect.

I feel and compromise with labour and birth as physiological events. The care I provide is indiviudalized for every woman, recognizing and respecting the desires and necessities of each woman, each family. That way, they can take responsability and control over the unique event that is birth. Where to give birth is something only each woman can decide. Good communication is basic through our relationship.

Through out any of the services I offer communicaction and availability will be continuous.

★ On weeekends (from friday  3pm), and holidays, price for services rises.

★ Some private insurances can cover your midwifery services. We can ask and do an invoice for you to get your money back.
