The Madison Midwives promotes a continuous and compassionate model of women’s healthcare, partnering with women to provide individualized methods of care. We believe women should play an active role in their health care decisions and the midwife will provide knowledgeable and compassionate care in partnering with women as they make these decisions. Working with a collaborative group of practitioners at Physicians for Women provides the opportunity to partner with Board Certified Obstetrics/Gynecologists in consultation, collaboration and referral within the health care team as needed to provide optimal health care for women.
