The Choice

Our Philosophy of Care

Our fundamental philosophy is that pregnancy and birth is a normal, healthy event in the life of a family. It is an opportunity for personal growth and the strengthening of relationships. It is a unique process that belongs to the pregnant woman and her family.

Our prenatal care center Katy is a partnership between a woman and her midwife. We strive to provide excellent care, education, and sensitivity for her concerns. Each woman has responsibility for her health choices and we encourage communication and participation in the decision-making process.

Midwifery is Unique
