Frequently Asked Questions
 

What is a Midwife?


The Texas Midwifery Board defines midwifery as the practice of providing the necessary
supervision, care, and advice to a woman during normal pregnancy, labor, and the
postpartum period; conducting a normal delivery of a child; and providing normal newborn
care. Midwives are people who practice midwifery and have met the Texas licensing
requirements established by the midwifery board rules.

Midwifery is a long-standing tradition in Texas health care because midwives:
  •  Offer a safe, more economic alternative to hospital birth,
  •  Provide more personalized and respectful care,
  •  Work in partnership with their clients,
  •  Are less dependent on technology, and
  •  Provide family-centered care.
Are midwives safe? Worldwide research indicates that outcomes for midwife-attended births, including planned out-of-hospital births, are as good as or better than outcomes for physician-supervised hospital deliveries.

Making the right choice for a birth place is an important decision. We hope that you and your
family will take the time to look at our birth center and ask questions. We look forward to
sharing this special time with you.



¿Qué es una Partera?


La Junta Directiva de Partería de Texas se define la partería como la provisión de
supervisión, cuidado, y consejo necesario a una mujer durante el embarazo, parto, y
posparto normal; atención al nacimiento natural de un bebé; y provisión de cuidado al
recién nacido sano. Parteras son personas que practica la partería y que son licenciadas
bajo los requeridos establecidos por La Junta Directiva de Partería.

La partería es una tradición de largo plazo en el cuidado sanitario de Texas porque las
parteras:
  • Ofrecen una alternativa segura y más económica al hospital,
  • Proveen el cuidado más personalizado y respetuoso,
  • Trabajan juntas con sus clientes,
  • Son menos dependientes sobre la tecnología,
  • Y proveen cuidado enfocado a la familia.
¿Son seguras las parteras? Las investigaciones internacionales indican que los resultados de los partos atendidos por parteras, incluidos los fuera del hospital, son tan buenos o mejores que los resultados de partos supervisados por médicos en hospitales.

Escoger el lugar donde dar a luz será una decisión importante. Esperamos que usted y su familia toman el tiempo para dar una vuelta en nuestro centro de partos y hacer preguntas. Anticipamos con placer a compartir este tiempo especial con usted.
