As one of the most developed countries, the United States has one of the highest maternal death rates. For most American women, giving birth in a traditional hospital setting is their first choice. While this is a viable option, there are other safe and effective ways to give birth that are simply less known. In today’s episode, host Amy Hsaio is joined in conversation with Josie Patricio Petrich, Maral Shabak, and Allison Tartari, the Midwives of Tourmaline to discuss all things midwifery.
Even though all three women come from very different backgrounds, their goal is all the same: to provide women and their families with a safe and personalized birthing environment. According to the midwives, one of the most effective ways to increase safety in birth is to establish a genuine connection between the family and their provider. While hospitals are usually the first option, they don’t provide personalized care and often perform unnecessary medical interventions– which only increase the likelihood of something going wrong. At the end of the day, birth should be an empowering and transformative experience; and every woman deserves the chance to choose the option that will make her feel safe.
Tune into this week’s episode of Ask Mama Amy to learn more about the role of a midwife, the importance of personalized birthing care, and how midwifery provides women with a safe space to give a natural and beautiful birth.
