Midwifery care strives to give you the most satisfying and joyful experience.
The key to midwifery care is listening to you and your baby. Lindy is up-to-date on the latest research, offering you comprehensive prenatal care in a personal environment. By fostering normal pregnancy and birth, she promotes family bonding. Fathers and partners are integral to the birth experience. Lindy honors their role in the family.
Many women transfer to Lindy so they will know who will be at their birth.
The goal of midwifery care is a safe and joyful birth with no routine medical interventions. However, if your pregnancy or birth becomes complicated, the back-up physicians at Alta Bates Hospital are always nearby to help with consultation or quick intervention. If there is a complication (including a cesarean delivery), Lindy stays with you and continues to care for you.
Lindy welcomes women seeking vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).
