Midtown Midwifery Collective
We are excited to announce the creation of the Midtown Midwifery Collective!
We are committed to serving our community by offering care, guidance, and education that aligns with the midwifery model of care. The Midwifery Model of Care isn’t limited to one type of provider or location, and it isn’t about having a certain type of birth. This model has at its core, being with, listening to, and sharing knowledge and decision-making with the individual or family according to their needs, regardless of whether it is practiced in the office, at home, in the hospital, with midwives or with doctors.
The goal of the Midwifery Model of Care is to support families in the process of birthing and helping them to find the information to welcome and raise their babies safely and confidently. We feel every family should have access to expert, safe, respectful, personalized, attentive, and affordable care. This type of care can happen in homes and in hospitals, medicated or unmedicated, with every type of provider.
The Midtown Midwifery Collective will be home to two of Reno’s Certified Professional Midwifery practices Sage Springs Midwifery and Sacred Space Midwifery & Holistic Health, offering care to both their own homebirth clients, as well as providing education and wellness services to other families in the community. Trauma informed care is a necessary and vital foundation for all the services we offer: community pap smear days, pregnancy testing and options counseling, interim prenatal care, private emotional birth preparation and postpartum processing sessions, group and one-on-one childbirth classes. We plan to expand our offerings with other classes and services, including support and education for other birth professionals.
Our hope is to provide a safe, supportive environment that creates collaboration and community.
